This appears to be a failure of Wing to handle long path names for some
things on Windows.  We'll look into fixing it.

Note that for projects converted from a Wing 2.x project, it's also worth
checking what got added to the project file.  Wing adds the shared parent
directory, which sometimes is too much stuff (like the entire disk!).
We've optimized some of this since 3.0.1, but it's still probably not a
good idea to add your entire disk to the project.  This may not be relevant
to your case but seemed worth mentioning anyway.
