Help with Isolated Storage path length

I'm using IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForDomain(), and then using this
object to create IsolatedStorageFileStream. The problem is the path
generated is too long (it throws an exception). It insists on a max of 260
characters, even though it is eating over 200 of that with its crazy path.
The path includes the domain user name, so you don't even know how many
characters you might have. I'm trying to create file names that include a
Guid and they're too long. Anyone know a way around this *($*%(@!!!!
problem?

Specifically it is a System.IO.PathTooLongException, message text being "The
path is too long after being fully qualified. Make sure path is less than
260 characters."
