Get a current 2.0 version of Netatalk, or if you already have that,
possibly set the right AFP protocol version somewhere (you need to use AFP3
at both ends, if there is a choice).  I use 1.6.4 on MacOS 8.6, so I can't
help there.  Netatalk 2 should support filenames up to 255 bytes long
(#chars depends on encoding), while 1.6 supports up to 31 bytes long.
