[TYPO3-50-general] cache files too long for windows

the restriction of the filename length is a real issue as it prevents 
most default installations from working on windows systems.
if anyone finds a good solution that works out of the box, i'll pay some 
beers at t3dd09 ;)

for now, you can add something like:

     temporaryDirectoryBase: C:/tmp/f3/

to your global FLOW3.yaml file

We've tried that already, but this weird "\\?\" prefix does not seem to 
have an effect when used in PHP...
