When dialog boxes get too long

Found this while trying to open an MSWord document in slightly nested path; the document itself had a fairly long filename.

[Microsoft Word] Path/to/VeryLongFilename.doc sollte nur mit Schreibschutz geöffnet werden, solange keine Änderungen gespeichert werden müssen. Soll die Datei mit Schreib [Ja] [Nein] [Abbrechen]

Rough translation:

Path/to/VeryLongFilename.doc should only be opened in readonly mode if you do not need to save any changes. Do you wish to open the file in read

[Yes] [No] [Cancel]

That is, the message was simply truncated. Oops.
