Bug Description

If I rename a file in-place (with the F2 key), and the name of the file is long enough to not fit in the window, it isn't scrolled when the cursor is beyond the window edge. So you basically don't see it and you can't see what you're editing.

In the single-panel mode, it seems to happen in "Compact" view only, if you scroll the list horizontally so that the file name gets cropped by the window edge.
In the dual-panel mode (Extra Pane is on), it happens in both panes, in "List" and "Compact" views.
