Have you tried using the "-l" option for genisoimage:
       -l     Allow full 31-character filenames.  Normally the  ISO9660  file-
              name  will  be in an 8.3 format which is compatible with MS-DOS,
              even though the ISO9660 standard allows filenames of  up  to  31
              characters.   If  you use this option, the disc may be difficult
              to use on a MS-DOS system, but will work on most other  systems.
              Use with caution.
