People who are putting their sandboxes into "My Documents" are likely
to see longer paths...

"My Documents" on this machine translates to the real path:
"C:\Documents and Settings\bob\My Documents" so it adds an extra 30 chars
on top of the "My Documents" specifier. With longer user names it is more.
