git checkout fails due to windows path length restriction

Our .net source folder structure ends up with some very long file paths (think \verylongsolutionname\verylongprojectname\Service References\verylongservicename\verylongprojectname.verylongservicename.datasource). This code is (currently) autogenerated through visual studio, so changing them to short names would be a large task with continual maintenance.

This limits us when cloning the repository to quite short repository paths. When bamboo checks out the version it tries to do so into something like this "bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir\HZN-DEV-JOB1" it fails because it's violating windows 260 char limit. I'm guessing this sort of path structure is hard coded, so I can't just get it to clone into c:\shortpath or similar...

Has anyone overcome this sort of issue?

We had a problem with the build not the checkout so it was a bit easier to handle. I made a symlink to bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir and always used that.
