Sorry for taking so long to respond.

Hm, I guess that the file might contain a new line character which isn't in the
home directory itself. The problem in that case is that the home directory path
isn't too long, only that of the files contained. I'm unsure about where to
draw the line -- maximum path length minus 100 characters? 95% of max path
length? Do you have an idea?
