Problem Connecting With CIFS

I am running Alfresco v2.1 on JBoss, on a Windows Vista pc, and was initially having trouble configuring the CIFS server to connect to the repository, but have figured a way around it and am wondering if it is a bug.  The problem was because my computer name was exactly 15 chars long, and it tries to automatically append "_A" for the CIFS server name, but I was receiving a message during JBoss startup that the CIFS name can only be 15 chars long so was truncated to exactly the same thing as my computer name.  Then, I wasn't able to map a drive to it.  So as a test, I shortened my computer name and was then able to get it working.  Is there a way for me to get this working with my original computer name?
