And what do you do when the line is *still* to long?

Actually, my suggestion would be to tweak the format_window_name
function in the file list.c to understand "%<digits>X" as a format
specifier. That way you can use the defwinfmt function to truncate it
to whatever you want it to be, and do it on the fly.

If it's just one or two long window names that are giving you
problems, you might consider using "title" to set their name to
something shorter.
