I can confirm this issue. It prevents building a IPython msi installer on Python 2.6 for Windows. 

A patch to the Directory.make_short function in msilib\ is attached. It falls back to generating prefix~pos filenames when a short name is already taken and also generates short names more similar to Windows/NTFS.
