tye, I'll try cd'ing to the dir and passing in just the pathnames.

Yes, it is really and truly too long. I'm trying to recover some length by shortening some of the directories near the start of the path in order to be able to move them without doing them one at a time by hand.

H:\so123456789012345ion/hudson/jobs/BFffs/workspace/b1234567-file-pare +nt/target/checkout/persistence-dom/src/main/java/xyz/abcd/fqq/perdom/ +pc/farmoperatingplancontributionpersistentservice/.svn/text-base/Stor +eManagementContributionDeclarationPC.java.svn-base,
258 characters

But you're right, the error occurs on a node in the path way before length becomes a problem. It works manually and that's what has me stumped.

I am getting "Bad File Descriptor" in the files that I don't want to change anyway, but on the ones that I want to change I get nothing. I'm debugging in komodo interactively so if there were anything there I should see it on $! as I step through the code.
