Wouldn't be better to decouple the split the toolbar in top and bottom
ones? That way you can still have the controls in the top part while
hiding the problematic bottom part.

Another idea would be to make the long name use ellipsis when the
window get shrunk. This is the way OSX interface handles long names.
