Description Alan Cox 2003-11-11 18:46:35 EST
Description of problem:

Set the locale to cy_GB.UTF-8, stick a clock on your panel and wait
for the date size to change. The applet fails to resize so you end up

      Maw Tach 1


    Maw Tach 11

Now cy_GB is unusual for two reasons - the months are not 3 letters
long (this is not a bug - Ulrich says so) and the month lengths vary
for the short form.

It has similar problems if you drag it from a 48-pixel high panel to a
16-pixel (menu) high panel. Until you open the prefs and turn on/off
seconds or date you just get what _was_ on the first line in the
taller panel.

Alan, the problem is also reported upstream.
Comment 3 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-23 08:59:49 EST
This seems to be a DUPLICATE of bug 79074.
Another upstream reference is

Alan, does an update to gnome-panel-2.4.2-1 fixes this issue?
Comment 5 Bart Martens 2004-02-24 11:54:14 EST
Created attachment 97998 [details]

This patch should fix the problem Alan reported. The fix is only for "cy". I
saw that a similar trick is already used for "li" and "nl".
Comment 6 Bart Martens 2004-02-24 12:27:35 EST
I submitted a similar patch for "hu" upstream.
Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2004-03-02 10:53:16 EST
