      Hi Gary,
      You are right. It seems that the rule used in netrw is approximately
      the same as the one used in hp True64 unix/CDE with "ls -F" (fixed
      colum width calculated to be the longest file name + 3).
      The rule used in Linux/KDE or gnome (variable column width with
      exactly two spaces between colums) is clearly more compact as it
      allows full column display when only one filename is long (which the
      previous rule does not allow).

      Best regards,

      Jean Johner
