Abbreviated file names in "extra" folder on Windows (only with PD installer version) #740

I just noticed that, with PD 0.50, patchers residing in the "extra" folder have abbreviated filenames on window bars (and in the PD console) ... like in an early DOS command line ...)

so, if i open f.e. the [closebang] helpfile from IEMGUTS folder via double-click, i see:


on the window bar. when i change something and save it, the PD console says:

saved to: C:/Program Files/Pd/extra/iemguts/CLOSEB~1.PD

the file is saved under the right name though, so it's not a big issue.

This happens with PD 0.50 (64bit) (installer version !) on a Windows 7/64bit, and ONLY when a patch is opened via double-click. Opening files from the menu load patches with the names displayed correctly. Patches outside the "extra" folder also don't have this issue.
