File completion window saws long paths

I've already experienced this with prior versions (now running TCC 9,02.154): when I hit F7 for file completion window, and the path is "too long", I'm unable to scroll totally to the right.
The longer the path, the more I loose
Looks like width of strings, in the completion window, isn't calculated properly. And maybe not just width: descending characters, like "g", appear truncated in the lower part, but on the last file/directory listed.

I'm trying it with "Lucida Console", normal, 12 pixel, but it appears as a similar problem with some other fonts, even switching to "Fixedsys" one.
May be related to the Unicode version? Don't know...

The attached image shows a lucky case, where just a single file has its name truncated -- see the red rectangles.

Anyone can confirm/help on this?

I do not see the problem under either 9 or 10 on my machine.

Is this with v9, v10, or both?
With TCC 9,02.154

The contents of the window & scrollbars is being drawn by Windows, not TCC. Is it truncating a lot or just the last character or two?
The part truncated is variable, sometimes less than a whole character, in other cases 2-3 characters and more -- not necessarily an integer number of characters.

I had this going on for a long time (never had time to report it till now...), on two different machines, a laptop and a desktop, both running XP pro, but with different console font size.
