Description Alan Cox 2003-11-11 23:46:35 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Bart Martens 2004-02-19 18:41:20 UTC
Alan, the problem is also reported upstream.

Comment 3 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-23 13:59:49 UTC
This seems to be a DUPLICATE of bug 79074.
Another upstream reference is

Comment 4 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-02-24 11:53:05 UTC
Alan, does an update to gnome-panel-2.4.2-1 fixes this issue?

Comment 5 Bart Martens 2004-02-24 16:54:14 UTC
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 17:27:35 UTC
I submitted a similar patch for "hu" upstream.

Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2004-03-02 15:53:16 UTC
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
