package names in assassin truncated at ~17, some not unique

It seems that assassin shows only the first ~17 characters in a package name. And the package naming pattern uses a left to right hierarchy, so in category Communication, for example, I see "qtopia-phone-x11-" twice. There are five in category "Miscellanous".
Also lots of packages are "openmoko-somethin".

There are many possible fixes. My rough preferences in decreasing order would be:
smaller font, finger scrolling, automatic scrolling, shorter tags in package name, reverse the package naming scheme
