  1. Create a test directory 'a'. Single byte name.
  2. Create a subdirectory to 'a' with a very long name. 250 bytes.

  4. And another. And another. And another. And another. Until it doesn't work anymore.
  5. Put a file in the final directory and by trial and error give it the longest file name you can.
  6. Now go back to 'a' and rename it to a 250 byte file name too.
  7. Now try to access/remove your file from step 5.
