That's peculiar... You can have filenames longer than 14 characters, but only
on some of the filesystems.  Maybe you are using NFS.  Anyway, to avoid problems
I shall consider your system cannot support long filenames at all.

How confusing! Some of your filesystems are sane enough to allow filenames
longer than 14 characters but some others like /tmp can't even think about them.
So, for now on, I shall assume your kernel does not allow them at all.
EOM

You can't have filenames longer than 14 chars.  You can't even think about them!
