This solution only works if the text /can/ be broken. So if you the region becomes too small (so that the text can't be broken down any further) the collision still occurs.
Setting "overflow: hidden" for 'pre.literal-block' will hide the text that doesn't fit (which might be prettier, but doesn't really solve the problem). To make long words (e.g. "Files\boost\boost_1_34_0") breakable you'll have to convince your documentation system to inject wbr tags into the text to provide predetermined breaking points (e.g. "Files\<wbr/>boost\<wbr/>boost_1_34_0" can break after every backslash).
