TOpenDialog file woes.....

I've been using TOpenDialog for selecting multiple files. Although the selected files are stored in the TString property "Files", I can't seem to access all the lines of this object. It will contain the first 17 files and a truncated copy of the 18th line. Is this a known bug? Is there are patch or a workaround?

Thanks for the answer, but unfortunately it doesn't work. If you look at the source of Dialog.Pas, you'll see a buffer being used. I tried changing this buffer size and creating my own component, but it still didn't work.... perhaps I overlooked something. Thanks for any other input.
function TOpenDialog.DoExecute(Func: Pointer): Bool;
const
  MultiSelectBufferSize = 8192;
  ...
begin
   ...
    if ofAllowMultiSelect in FOptions then
      nMaxFile := MultiSelectBufferSize else
      nMaxFile := MAX_PATH;
   ...

I have 36 selected 36 files and it worked fine. What version of Delphi do you have?
