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?

  If OpenDialog.Files.Count>0 Then
      Begin
      For X := 0 To OpenDialog.Files.Count-1 Do
         Begin
         If FileExists(OpenDialog.Files[X]) Then
            Begin
            mtrLoadFiles(OpenDialog.Files[X]);
            Memo.Lines.Add(OpenDialog.Files[X]+' added.');
            End;
         End;

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;
   ...
