Your hypothesis is absolutely correct.  I encountered the same problem
with SPP and remedied it by editing the file names and directory names
to their long versions.  It is a time-consuming process and in
retrospect I suspect you may be able to use the Mac version of SPP and
spare yourself the tedium of editing the files.  Although, I'm not
certain how you would decompress the Mac version when you download it
from MathSource.
