Wow, 0.8.3p1 is pretty old. I'd suggest to upgrade :)

Regarding your problem: Just use hyphens to divide your builder name string.

We use for example "gammaray1.3-qt4.8-linux64", the browser automatically 
word-wraps the string after the hyphens and I get a relatively small column 
for that particular builder
