I am using claasicthesis version v4.1 along with scrreprt version v3.11b. I am trying to force printing the longer version of the section title in the table of content but no success so far.

I used the following options for scrreprt:

            titlepage, numbers=noenddot, headinclude,
            footinclude=true, cleardoublepage=empty,
            BCOR=30mm, paper=letter, fontsize=11pt, 
            ngerman, american, 

and also the following for classicthesis


In the manual it is mentioned that:

\section[short version ]{heading }

with option headings=optiontohead, KOMA -Script doesn’t use the optional argument short version at the table of contents, but for the running head only.

Unfortunately, for some reason the table of content still uses the short version of the title even after using headings=optiontohead. Could someone please let me know how I force scrreprt to use the longer version of the section title in TOC?

After chatting with @egreg, he suggested me to avoid using long titles in classicthesis. "classicthesis uses titlesec that disrupts the method used by scrbook for the headings=... option.", said egreg. – Ahmad Dec 2 '13 at 22:52

I answered a similar question on the GuIT forum

The problem is quite intricated. Since classicthesis uses titlesec, the method scrbook uses for deciding what goes in the header or in the table of contents with headings=optiontohead doesn't work.

I fear that the only way is to say

\sectionmark{Azione collettiva o scelta individuale}
\section{La ristrutturazione: un problema di azione collettiva
  o una razionale scelta individuale?}
\sectionmark{Azione collettiva o scelta individuale}

The best would be avoiding long titles.
