Description Heiko W. Rupp 2011-10-04 07:12:01 EDT
When code like the DynaGroups editor is throwing an exception it throws something like:

   throw new DynaGroupIsWrongException("this group definition must not contain < chars")

The message center shows

java.lang.RuntimeException[12312]: org.rhq.entrprise.some.long....  (here the window size cuts the text

and then below the full stack trace, which is normally full of GWT and other crap.
The user has to scroll sideways to find why that exception happened "this group definition must not contain < chars"

We need to unwrap the exceptions to get the message and only display this on a line 
and then with some distance show the stack trace
