Bug description:
  Folder names in Location area keeps the width even though when I go back to upper folder.
  First of all this new downgraded nautilus folder section holds its width and I cannot even change the width at all.
  Then when I go deep down lower folders or open folder with long name, it would squeeze down the "Name" part and I cannot even see names anymore. Then when I go up to upper folder or root, I cannot see the names anymore becaue location column takes up all the space. Once I click one of the unseen folder, I may see the names again. 
  This is one of too many problems of 13.10.
