  Too many icons in Gnome Shell Activities Overview require ellipses

Bug description:
  Several apps in the default Ubuntu 17.04 or 17.10 install have
  Ellipses when shown in GNOME Shell's Activities Overview.

  This was made worse by switching GNOME Shell to use the Ubuntu font
  because the Ubuntu font is a bit wider than GNOME's default Cantarell
  font so some apps that didn't require ellipses in 17.04 require them
  now in 17.10 Alpha.

  The upstream GNOME bug proposes that apps names be allowed to use 2
  lines. This is similar to what the Settings app (gnome-control-center)

  This is also really bad for languages that use more characters than

  Original Bug Title
  Gnome Shell Activities Overview should show full names on mouse hover

  Original Bug Report
  The title says it all --- especially when choosing recent documents, if they 
start with the same say 12 or 14 letters, it's impossible to differentiate them 
 (see attached screenshot).

  When mouse is hovering an icon, the full name of the
  application/document should be shown.
