Question shortened filenames on iso9660 mount

I have a data dvd that was sent to me with a very strange property. When mounted under linux the file names are a maximum of 63 bytes. Under Windows they can be longer.

For example
ED000321^Status of the main heating plant of building N on Dec 19.xls
under Windows would be
ED000321^Status of the main heating plant of building N on D.xls
under linux.

When I use samba to copy from the Windows computer to the linux computer the full filename is copied, so I think the problem is in the mount command, but the man page for mount offers no explanation for this.

Any ideas on what is happening and how I can fix this?

The problem is probably with your iso9660 kernel module. You should upgrade it (or maybe your entire kernel!).
