When viewing any data model, table names listed in the "Catalog" tab are truncated (actual name is cut-off).  The tooltip shows the correct value, but it causes irritation and lack of productivity when required to hover over a name to determine which is which (for two similar tables).

e.g. TableNameXYZ and TableNameABC might be displayed as "TableName" with the actual name only apparent when hovering over the relevant tables.

How to repeat:
In the MySQL workbench, on the home page:
 - Open an Existing Data Model or create one from an existing database or script.
 - Note that the table names listed in the Catalog tab have been truncated (display only).

Suggested fix:
Increase display length for tree nodes (table names) in catalog view.

This problem occurs in on Microsoft Windows (7 Home Premium SP 1) 64-bit. Making the panel wider does not solve the problem.
