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
Alan, the problem is also reported upstream.
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?
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".
I submitted a similar patch for "hu" upstream.
Okay, a gnome-panel Fedora Core 1 Update (2.4.2-3) with a fix
for this bug is now available from:
See the upstream bug (#112393) for more details
