Confirmed that this is an issue with JRE 1.5.0_06

I have detected something strange with IzPack version 3.6.2.

I created my installer and installed on one machine with JRE 1.5.0_06 
and Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition**.
I checked that one file was missing.

So, I looked into the JAR, and opened with an hexa editor the contents 
of the packs/pack0 file.
And I found that the entry for the missing file was there:

If I reinstall in the same machine, the same error happens again.

If I install in another machine with the same operating system and JRE 
1.5.0_03 and 1.5.0_05, everything goes well.

Can be the cause the name being so long?
The filename is one of the longest one.
The selected install path is in both cases a short one: c:\fcc\servidor-ima

Is this a bug?
Has been corrected in newer versions of IzPack?
Has something similar happened to anyone else?

Thanks for any help, while I try the newest version....

Best regards,
