I'm on 10.04 so my observations may not be valid. When I do what you
outline a scrollbar becomes visible at the bottom and I can scroll to
the right and then grab a column border and resize. Also when I open a
folder with long file names the folder does not expand the file name is
truncated with ellipses on the end of the name.
