This is quite interesting question how to shorten path to keep important
part of it.

For me "dialog - path" is more native, but I can live with both way
without any problem.
In fact "dialog: path" or just "dialog path" (but "path - dialog") would
make it shorter and nicer for my eye, but not big deal.

Note: I'm missing this info mainly on properties dialog, if I copy some
parts - external usualy, and in mean time switch to other windows is
harder to return to one I want to go.

I would interesting if update or other progress dialogs (operation on
more paths) can have their actual progressing (not externals) WC path
instead of common one. I usualy update about dosen WCs at once so this
give me more info about actual progress without open window itself, also
I have all project in one dir and sometimes I update then in more parts
(2-3) so I have two same dialog names. But again: not big deal
At least commonPath... would make a trick to know common dir name was used.

Other improvement I see is moving "finished!" part more more to front
for text logic reason, however not sure if this is improve its visibility.
Maybe changing its color, or style - just kidding.

In c++ builder I can change App title and window title separetely if you
would like this concept I can check if it is possible to use it in VC.

Result: what ever is ok for me, consistency is nice
