Comment 2 Ingo Schaefer 2006-07-20 09:24:28 EDT
found out several things about this.

I installed fc5 in text mode on another machine (i386) and found this text
fragments also.

Same for the current development anaconda.

Possible Reason:
The localized strings are in some cases much longer than the original ones, so
they are printed over the boundary of the grey background "dialog" box. After
closing the dialog box, only the space occupied from this dialog will be
reprinted with the blue background, so the overflown text stays there forever.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-02-27 14:37:04 EST
This should be fixed now.  Text wrapping in the text installer is now a lot
smarter than it used to be.
