Agreed, you can't see folder names as appears in the attachment. But you can always expand the view towards the right see you can see them.
The view  is already expand.
Even if i expand the view on the whole screen (22"), the size of the list box tree view is very small. As a result, the folder name is not visible.

You seem to have a very deep folder hierarchy.
In that case this problem happens, I confirm it.
The width of the folder tree is set to the width of the folder chooser control
The UI question is what should happen in this case. Maybe it is a property of the chooser widget and would need to be fixed in core Toolkit.
Ever confirmed: true
