Hi Tom,

thanks for the reply, I verified and you are right about the present
behavior. I guess I disagree on the last point; i think horizontal
scrolling through the directory hierarchy is more often used than the
scrolling for long file names (at least in my experience). so i would
opt for the jumpy behavior, or if that's undesired, for having the mouse
x scroll wheel scroll only the panels and never the file names (for
these, one would have to use the scroll bar). but that's just me..
