Yes, I know that Vista is an NT-based OS, but even the NT-based OSs
had the MAX_PATH limit. Even in the Explorer. I know there is a way
around it, but most programs don't use it.

Let me restate my question, if I am using Perforce on Windows Vista,
do I run into the same problems I would on Windows XP with the
MAX_PATH limitation?
