It could be because of the filename length, eg
w3c.jigsaw.resources.NegotiatedResource.html is 45 characters long and Mac
has 31 characters limit. So everything longer than that get truncated and
reported as bad file name.

I have no clue about that one, but just two guesses. One, it could be
something to do with relative pathes, because Jigsaw is a bit picky from
which directory you start.
Another is that there might be some problem with files starting from  full
stop. Wasn't there something about having hard-drive names start with full
stop like .Sony ??

Hope we will hava Mac Jigsaw soon, still hope...
