Oguz Akyuz posted a message on the fltk.general group observing that he could not scroll all the way to the right hand end of his entries, such that one or two characters were lost from the end of file names.

The following is a snapshot of the ensuing discussion: Note that there does indeed seem to be an issue with the scroll, under some some (uncertain) circumstances...

Looks like I can reproduce this bug on my Mac... But
If I browse to a directory with longish file names in it, then turn
on the preview window, and move the preview area splitter to the
left, then the horizontal scroll bar does not appear until the text
has disappeared well under the vertical scroll bar - I guess, from
the way it looks, that the width of the vertical scroll bar has not
been taken into account (or something) in computing the horizontal
viewable area.

Hmmm, no, after a bit more fiddling about, I'd now guess that the
problem seems to be more pronounced (for me) on directory names, file
names seem relatively unaffected. So, now I'm wondering if the
strings are measured wrong? Directory names are in a bold font, and
therefore slightly wider than the same text in a normal font...?

OK, now this is odd... As I moved the splitter back and forth in this
directory, I was "losing" the last two chars off the horizontal range
(as Oguz described...) Then I changed the "Show" field from "PDF",
which seems to be the default for this demo, to "All Files" and the
horizontal scroll seems to work right now... Changing back to PDF it
goes awry again. Very strange. Seems to be reproducible, though...
