No, definately a SERVER issue.
  Tested (and reproduced) limitation with the Windows Browsers: Firefox, 
Internet Explorer, and Lynx.  Limitation also occured with the dedicated 
Windows Gopher Client: WSGopher32.
  Not a Windows File System issue either, as Windows allows 256 character paths 
(a significant increase over the old DOS limit of 64 characters).

This wasn't a *client* issue, was it? Does he still have the same problem if
he uses another client to access the selector in question? (What is the
selector he was trying to access?)
