unix path length limits for namd

I’m a namd newbie, and I have a question about allowed unix path lengths in namd.conf files with commands like fixedAtomsFile, consref, etc. I’ve been specifying these with absolute path names, and namd crashes with a sigabrt if the path exceeds about 135 characters or so. The documentation just lists “Unix filename” as acceptable values, without specifying any other limitations, so I’m wondering if there is an actual limit on the length of these path names, and I have to stop using absolute paths for these, or if I’m doing something else wrong.

This is namd 2.10 on MacOS 10.11.
