...will cause it; you will notice the text does not start at the top
nor does it reach the bottom.
extra new lines you didn't specify; adding them simply causes 2.
no extra lines; only the text as put in.

appears to fix the issue for me; also resolves the extra trailing spaces

thanks, unfortunately I couldn't find the .i386 version so I just
grabbed the .src rpm and rebuilt it local (though x86_64, ppc, ppc64,
ia64, etc. all appeared to be there). Unfortunately I noticed a bad
side effect of my patch :( It now always prints the percent even when
the text fits. I'll attach a patch that corrects that in just a bit.
Having the percent isn't catostrophic it's just cleaner not to have
it where it's not needed. I also noticed --textbox puts ()'s not
spaces around the percent as I added, though it's otherwise completely

hides percent when not needed
corrects condition where the percert is always displayed even though the text
