Public bug reported:

1. Insert a blank CD
2. Drag & drop files with really long names
3. Burn the CD

The file names that exceeed the maximum size will have their file names
truncated on the resulting CD without warning.

Worse - The file extension is lost.

Popular applications use to warn the user so he/she can rename the file
in a reasonable way. Another possibility is to (at least) implement a
"sane" truncating algorithm, which preserves the file extension.
