file path length in .deb package.

Hi there,

  After reading the documentation of 'man deb' I cannot see any
reference to any arbitrary length for filename in a deb package. For
instance I have filepath (including sub directories) that reach ~100
characters. the tar format completely support that, but I am having
some weird issue on my debian etch amd64 box. I have created a package
where all files with long filepaths simply don't get installed (while
being accessible using ar xvf + tar xvfz data.tgz).

  Let me know if this is a known issue.
