Sorry, it was not clear enough, I meant the right end of the labels (usually 
the "...") which is hidden by the vertical scrollbar. When there is a 
vertical scrollbar, the labels should be squeezed again. See screenshot at

That what I said, 12/13 ems is only a suggestion as we can't (and shouldn't) 
make the width fit for all translations :-)
