Are you saying that you are seeing full patch names in the MRU menu or
that it's truncated when in the Look In entry area?  It may be that
setting the Files / Title Style preference to Append Relative or
similar may help w/ this.

While we could add managing of this list, it might be simpler to just
add tooltips that show up when you hover over truncated names.  However,
please let me know where it's doing this as I wasn't able to reproduce it.
