Again, this is an example of things that are wrong with current GIMP's UI :)
You should not have to resize the toolbox just to see layer names.
Long names should be ellipsized, with full names being displayed in
tooltips when you hover. This is how it works pretty much everywhere.
I had a patch on that in the works, but it broke a few things that I
could not immediately figure out.

Let's just say that the tools' options dialog should never be that
wide in the first place, and it's something on mitch's roadmap since,
like, dawn of times.
