This is actually done intentionally to prevent the window to get too wide. It doesn't look good though; the text should be truncated with ellipsis instead. In any case what you see now is what would have happened in earlier releases as well AFAICT.

In fact doesn't look good. The next screenshot "LongNames_Find_Window.png" show how a long name should be shortened.

I actually miss the ellipsis here, too. Still better though :-)

The bug is in BMenu and friends not truncating the string correctly, not Tracker.
