Not specific to Japanese, and happens in nautilus 2.0.3 still. Nautilus source
code looks like it should handle this. May be related to "nautilus icons come up
in a big pile" bug. Should check whether it happens with a nautilus using core X
Comment 3 Paul Gampe 2002-08-13 21:11:47 EDT
Startup screen in ja_JP locale also has the message text positioned below the 
half-way line.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-13 21:21:39 EDT
Splash screen problem is also not CJK-specific, happens in all locales.
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2002-08-20 07:40:40 EDT
It looks like nautilus just looks at max-width when considering icon text width.

I think this is due to the change in wrapping. Nautilus used to wordwrap, but if
that wasn't possible, use character wrapping to never extend past min_width. I'm
not sure how to get this behaviour back with pango.
Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-20 10:56:04 EDT
As a hack maybe we could just crank up the max width for now?
Comment 7 Owen Taylor 2002-08-20 12:27:12 EDT
See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81906 for a request
for the relevant Pango enhancement (definitely not going to happen
for Milan or pango-1.2 though.)
Comment 8 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-23 15:44:21 EDT
In nautilus 2.0.5-2 I'm putting in a lame hack to just pad the left margin 
and make this happen less often. We can increase the margin a bit if desired.

Upstream as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91547
Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2002-08-28 06:54:38 EDT
Looks much better now, thanks. (The end of "home" in Japanese is getting split
across a line now, so if the default wide could be increased a bit more it
would be even nicer, though not such a big deal.)
