The TinyMCEPlugin won't install on 1.1.9 from the .tgz file, at least with older versions of cpan modules. Archive::Tar seems to have trouble with long filenames, and attempts to extract the @LongLink trigger name that is set in the archive when a filename exceeds the blocksize. The zipfile version installs fine. The following patch fixes the issue on 1.1.9, might be advisable on 1.2.0
