I think it was introduced wrt the alignment of the desktop icons along a grid.
Personally, I think not cropping text would be a better solution - why would a
user use a long text, if not for seeing it.
Regarding the tooltip: I have also seen, that the tooltip does not show the
name of the file - as I assume it is intentionally, why was this choosen ?
(It's worse when the tooltip is shown in konqi listview when a column is too
small to show the full name)
Anybody mind the following patch ?

Might be even too short ... ?
I'm asking myself if the bug http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79932 is
still valid ?
If I set my desktop to align icons, they are very close together, no wide
space as described.
What if we simply do not crop the text, adapt also konqis iconView when
aligning the icons, remove both options to define the number of text lines
used (trash my patch and remove the option from the konqi-as-filemanager),
and close 79932 ?
