SVN - File name too long


I've getting the following error trying to import files to SVN;

svn-base': File name too long
I am trying to SVN some files I brought over from Windows. Some of these filenames are long over 245 chars (windows limits to 255)

When SVN tries to add it's '.svn-base' at the end, the files are becoming longer than the 255 chars that linux allows;

I think this is the reason for the error.

Is there a work around?

I can't control what the filenames are.
