Description Daniel Berrange 2007-10-02 21:13:08 UTC
Description of problem:
The popup window for the notifications is arbitrarily truncating the text passed
in as the body of notification.

It does not look like a specific length threshold. If I double the amount of
text it'll show more than before, but always misses off the last N% of words

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run attached  'notification.pl' script
Actual results:
Last word displayed is 'nulla' - last 15 words are missing

Expected results:
All words are displayed

Demo script to show truncated text

The attached script uses perl-Net-DBus to demo truncation of text by the
notification daemon.

Screenshot  showing truncated text

The popup on the left-hand side shows correct full display on Fedora 6. The
popup on the right shows the truncated display on Fedora 8.

I believe Jon McCann fixed this a few weeks ago.
