Does it currently auto-update the display when files get added or
deleted by some other process?  I never use combo boxes that remember
previous locations, I always forget it's there until I've typed it all
again.  If you show the location in the title bar rather than at the
bottom it might free up a little space.  Also, you should clear the
address bar imo, as it's annoying to click in them and have that address
highlighted and therefore replace the x clipboard.
