Truncating name

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but here goes.

I sent a file with a filename of aaaaaa.vbs.txt (96 a's), and anomy
truncated it to 100 chars:

28861: Enforced policy: accept (attachment
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.vbs.txt)
28861: Rewrote filename: [1]
 
>>aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.vbs.txt<<
as
>>aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.v
bs.t
xt<<

28862: Rewrote long ( >100 bytes ) MIME name: [101]
 
>>aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.vbs.txt<<
as
>>aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.vbs<<

The attachement went through even though the mime name was .vbs! I see that
the real file name has been truncated from the left, but does the mime name
matter? My outlook client saw it as aaaa....vbs.txt, but could the mime
name ever be misinterpreted?

Thanks,

Sean
