The way Report Magic is written, if there are more than 12 bars in a bar chart 
is skips labels so that the number of labels along the x axis is 12 or 13. I 
agree this is not ideal for a really wide chart, and one could take into 
account the width of the chart when determining the label skipping.

On the other hand, a really wide chart is not all that visually helpful and 
given your data distribution, most of those directories have very few results. 
I would suggest adding a DIRFLOOR to the Analog configuration so that the data 
that you see and chart is only the top directories. I think that will make the 
chart clearer. 

I recognize that ideally you may want to see data for all directories in the 
table and chart just the top items. At this point there is no exposed "chart 
floor" feature in Report Magic, although it does have the concept internally if 
you want to tweak the source.
