This seems to be a bug in gtk file chooser widget - there doesn't appear to be anything built in to control it.

the name column can be widened and the
whole filename/date/etc pane has scroll bars, so it is possible to
scroll the pane so that the informative part of the name shows.. Another workaround would be to delete the~/.thumbnails
directory. Better: turn off Thumbnails in the Edit->Prefs->Miscellaneous
tab. (Though you will still need to delete the old thumbnails).
