If you have a filebrowser open with underspecified directory fields '
(e.g. <LISP*>), the file browser window shows the files each with its directory.'
If you select some of them and bug Info, the Info window comes up displaying only the namefield, so you can''t easily tell which is which.'
Moreover, the columnation of the info window is such that long file names (including their versions) are simly written over by the first column of information.  I think this should be done by a TAB like operation that goes to the next line if the current lines X position is past the tab column.'
