Very long folder and filenames break user's profile in Windows 7.

We have a user that likes to save articles off the internet onto his documents folder.  When he does this, extremely long folder names are created with very long filen ames residing inside.  When he logs off or logs on to his computer, he gets a message about roaming profile partially synchronized.  Event viewer shows that windows could not copy these extremely long filenames to the server.  Is there a way to automatically trim these filenames down so that if he does save articles to his documents folder, we don't have these profile issues again?
