  Can not trash files with name length more than 246 characters

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  The maximum file name size is 256 characters in Linux. I think, this
  is a bug in itself, see how I discovered it this limit of the system:

  I read on the net, that someone had the problem copying UTF characters
  from NTFS to Ext3, but hopefully this works by now fine.

  And the recent bug: make a file with name length more than 246
  character, and try to trash it with Gnome. You can't because in the
  trash it gets an additional .trashinfo extension -- not enough space
  for that.

  Try trash this:

  $ touch

  (For trashing open the container folder: Places and the first item.
  You find this file here after the previous command.)
