While on the subject, can you also do the same for those little caption headers on each pane --I mean, where it displays windows path (on the left) and *nix path on the right; could you also turn them into user-selectable text for copy&paste.
These controls as well as those on file Properties dialog has ability to shorten the path (using /.../), when it does not fit. The edit box does not have the ability. That's why I do not want to change it to edit. However I'll add the option to copy path to clipboard to the respective right-click menu.
