      Description

      If the root working directory created by the agent is past a certain length, the
      warning: unable to access 'node_modules/mocha-eslint/node_modules/eslint/node_modules/doctrine/node_modules/esutils/lib/.gitattributes': Filename too long

      Instead of using the task id as the base for the working directory, we could use somethign shorter, like

      {task display name}

      _

      {object id hex string}

      Make sure that the string is sanitized to just characters that are legal for filenames.
