With my installation of Frame 8.0p277, I tried using the modified module 
fmdlg.dll from http://www.daube.ch/docu/fmaker36.html#4 without success:

FM 8 crashes --consistently-- when I select an image (imported by 
cross-reference into a graphics frame), and select Graphics > Object 

I did use several other dialogs that were indeed made wider to accomodate 
longer file names. However, the consistent crashes were unacceptable, and 
I reverted to the original fmdlg.dll. Here's hoping that a version 8 dll 
comes soon. I don't trust my abilities in using Resouce Hacker or similar 
tools, though the advice to make a copy of fmdlg.dll before making edits 
should avoid catastrophe...

Thanks Stuart - I've received two offline suggestions along these lines 
am looking at it right now!
Thanks for all the on- and off-line responses!

You could use a Resource Editor like http://angusj.com/resourcehacker/
to resize your x-ref_main dialog box to accommodate longer names.

Make a backup of fmdlg.dll in Program Files > Adobe > Framemaker >
