Which is quite understandable due to the way GtkTreeView works. On
Windows, you just select the labels of files in the details view, but
in Gtk, you always select the whole row and you can't click anywhere
else if there are a lot of rows. 

One idea would be to add this feature to the context menu of the
pathbar buttons. This is the only place where it makes sense, I think.
