I import them into Resolve (with the "Extract reel name from EDL" config option), but when I import the EDL from Avid it ignores the comment:

003 LE__0065 V C 18:11:23:18 18:11:25:10 01:00:04:02 01:00:05:19
* SOURCE FILE: LE__0065_01"

I've always just kept the file name and the clip name the same in Avid. Because your clip name is different you could modify the EDL changeing 'SOURCE FILE' to 'FROM CLIP NAME'. Try opening the Avid EDL in TextEdit and use 'Find and Replace' to automatically change all the instances of '* SOURCE FILE:' to '* FROM CLIP NAME:' then save and make sure the file extension is still .EDL

Or try an EDL template in EDL manager that has longer reel names - try 'file 16' or 'file 32' or I think there's a RED EDL template on the avid site somewhere that I've used before. It makes a CMX3600 list but has up to 16 characters in the reel column.
