No, not really.
How about make the size of the boxes depending on the content?
IMHO the first and last part of the path should be visible completely,

       | Revision 4711 (changed)
       | /tags/..../050930_MyProduct_1-5-78_HotfixForSomething |


but in case of very large names (like ours) this can be a problem.
What do you think?

Good point, but bad argument. Following your theory, nobody should use
colors and sounds, because there are blind and deaf people on this world.
Please do not misunderstand me: I understand and accept the problem of
accessibility, and I think it's an important point. But on the other hand,
if one is not disabled that way, colors offer a great deal of usability.

That's right, especially with regard to accessibility.

Please have a look at the attachment.
