Description Rahul Sundaram 2008-04-01 03:26:23 UTC
Description of problem:

Frequently the system tray messages from PK is too long and gets cut off.
Debugging or even understanding what the message is just hard when this happens.

Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-04-01 10:47:21 UTC
You can reproduce doing:

notify-send "fooooooooo" "baaaaaaaaaaaaar baaaaaaaz fooooooo baaaaaaaar

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 08:29:48 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:57:13 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

> notify-send "fooooooooo" "baaaaaaaaaaaaar baaaaaaaz fooooooo baaaaaaaar
> baaaaaaaaaaaz"

works fine here now. I believe we fixed this at some point.

In fact, we fixed it right after this bug was reported:

* Sun Apr  6 2008 Jon McCann <jmccann@redhat.com> - 0.3.7-9
- Don't clip text in message bubbles (#441099)
