Filenames on Nook Simple Touch oddly mangled

I am trying to send files to a Nook Simple Touch from Calibre, and have been struggling to get the file renaming facility to work consistently. For some reason the Nook ST is recognised by Calibre (OS/X) as a NOOK_COLOR. The only way I seem to be able to influence the file name on transfer is by changing the pattern in the NOOK_COLOR plugin. But then the series name is truncated, but not always to the same length, and sometimes the series_number is there and sometimes not. Likewise with the title.

Is there something else affecting the behaviour of the plugin? Or is this something the Nook itself is doing?

file paths are limited to a total length of 240 characters. names are automatically truncated so that the total path length fits.
