Description of problem:
While installing FC4 in text mode (I was using NFS install method), long package names cause the file name strip (grey color) to expand beyond the width of installation dialog box & this "expanded part" remains there until the installation finishes & the computer reboots. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start FC4 install in text mode
2. Let a package with long name be installed
3. The bug will be reproduced (although, i havn't tried reproducing it)

Actual Results:  The bug appears

Expected Results:  The long name can be shortened using elipses (...) or can be broken into two words & taken into the next line.

Did a rawhide install in text mode and I didn't see any long package names that
would extend beyond the edge of the window (i386 and x86_64).  Still, I added a
check to trim the package name if it's wider than the window and replace the end
with '...'.
