on Win8, 32bit, with Python 2.7.x
loading a file in MSDOS 8+3 style into PyScripter ( e.g."" ), executing Pylint works fine.

But on Win8, 32bit, with Python 2.7.x
loading a file in Windows long filename style into PyScripter ( e.g."" ), executing Pylint causes the error message

Command line: C:\Python27\python.exe C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\pylint\ C:\Users\Public\projects\SPOTIF~1\REVERS~1.PY -f parseable
C:\Users\Public\projects\SPOTIF~1\ [C] Invalid name "REVERS~1" for type module (should match (([a-z_][a-z0-9_]*)|([A-Z][a-zA-Z0-9]+))$)
Process "Pylint" terminated, ExitCode: 00000010

You see that the call of pylint is done in MSDOS 8+3 mode, i.e.. "REVERS~1.PY" is called.
While all other processing of Pylint works fine, I don´t know how to prevent this error message.

As it is unusual to shrink ( Python ) source code file names to 8+3 format, nowadays,
in opposite to the situation with Windows 3.1, 3.11, 95, 98, 98SE, ME, before W2k
of course I would like to use long Windows filenames which correspond to the Python class names used in the source code ( no CamelCode in the spelling of the filename of course ).

I would be pleased about an official update,
or a Pylint configuration file which fixes it by disabling the "module" check which causes the error message.

I checked the Internet by Google, it looks as if I am the first one deals with this bug ?!
