Comment 4 Miloslav Trmač 2012-09-21 12:27:15 EDT
This is a libgnomeui bug, looking at http://git.gnome.org/browse/libgnomeui/tree/libgnomeui/gnome-dateedit.c#n769:
> 	gtk_widget_set_size_request (gde->_priv->date_entry, 90, -1);
the date edit field always uses a fixed size.

(audit-viewer could work this around by setting a larger fixed size, but that wouldn't actually fix the problem, and it's not obvious what size to use.)
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 23:04:50 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '17'.

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 17'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 17 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, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

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.

Comment 13 Satyabrata Maitra 2016-05-30 03:06:30 EDT
In my observation, actually, its not physically truncated due to the restricted space in this field, rather, if user uses the right or left arrow key, the entire date format is visible.

Use the Arrow keys to view the entire date format.

The only thing is that the Date field is not too stretched horizontally to accommodate the entire date format at a stretch.

I think, it is under permitted functionality. Not considering it as Bug.

That’s a very weak workaround, really not good enough. The GTK layout model is built around auto-sizing, and autosizing the date field should be quite possible.
