Well, there is no panacea with 8.3 names. The other solutions are to avoid using them all together or to try and quote them. I usually opt to avoid them.

I've tried that approach too. Here's a problem
with it. Create directories like
My Work 20021106
My Work test version
and record the 'short' paths, like mywork~[1-3] .
Then create them on a different machine in a
different order, or erase and recreate them
on the same machine in a different order. They
now map to different 'short' paths.
