When you name with color value name gets cut off inside the pallette in the swatch option pallette.
This is not a problem. I was just noticing it on the Mac side from at least CS5 ON.
Expand the width of your panel?
Swatch Option pallette not Swatch pallette. The Swatch Option pallette appears when you double click your color. This pallette is not expandable. I also tried adjusting screen resolution. Try it for yourself.
It doesn't appear that way for me.
Try restoring your preferences:

I'm seeing the same cut-off display here (on MacPro running 10.6.8).
Steve your pallete says New Color Swatch mine says swatch option. Its not the same thing. To Tom U. I am running 10.6.8 also.
You're correct when in Swatch Options. It appears to be a bug. I'd report it as such.
OK. Steve I reported it.
