Well, I don't know who decided to put settings in the advanced dialog, but it 
fits with the other settings there.

It should do when the icons are aligned to the grid.
(The setting is only used to calculate the grid width).
If you don't use a grid alignment, then the text should be completely visible 
- but I've seen that changing the grid aligning checkbox does not refresh the 
desktop. I'll check.

The right thing is hard to define...
But I doubt that limiting the width with an arbitrary value is the right
