This is kind of a known problem and an open ticket (#311) for
improving this behavior has been laying around in our database for 8
years(!). One of the reasons it has languished is that no simple
solution really suggested itself that wasn't a heck of a lot of
programming effort. However, while thinking about your request just
now I did think of a solution that wasn't too hard and also wasn't
wickedly ugly. In tomorrow's build the browser columns will configure
themselves to the width of the longest name in the column — within the
range of 20-100 "characters" (what the Tk GUI toolkit believes to be
the width of a character). I hope that will be good enough for your
needs. I could always change the limits if not.
