Might be related to font, if number of characters before inserting ellipsis is decided before font is rendered. the tools to the right of the path are pushed right, even if this pushes them off the rendered window. minimum is apparently 675 pixels, before borders from window manager. icons also expand into the new space, so the rightmost rows can end up off-screen. reset by using a path that avoids folders with names that are too long, either before or after the current folder.
