File names shortened in 5.1 under Windows 2000

I'm running Mathematica 5.1 under Windows 2000.  Whenever I double-click 
a .nb file in windows Explorer whose name has more than 8 characters, 
the title bar shows a DOS-like "8+3" version of the file name.  (For 
example, "ParametricCurves.nb" appears as "Para~1.nb".)

If, on the other hand, I open the file from Mathematica's File menu, I 
see the full notebook name in the title bar.

Can the unwanted behavior in the double-click case be remedied (without 
upgrading to Windows XP)?
