My understanding is that we use "classic" paths (not starting with 
"\\?") whenever they are short enough, anyway.  So the problem cannot be 
solved with an #if, but (short of abandoning berkeleydb) needs to be 
worked around by making sure the LO installation is in a location with a 
short path (so that the paths of any files within the installation that 
are handed to berkeleydb are also short).
