Bug#927037: Message didn't fully fit inside its window

積丹尼 Dan Jacobson
Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor

I recall when the graphical installer got to this message,

  Name: partman-crypto/progress/plain_erase_text
  Type: text
  Description: The installer is now overwriting ${DEVICE} with zeroes to delete its previous contents. This step may be skipped by cancelling this action.

it didn't fully fit in its window, so people couldn't see the last part
of the sentence.

Indeed, on progress-bar screens the text below the scroll bar is display
only on one line, so if it's long it is cut. The newt-based cdebconf
shows the text on several lines so it doesn't have the issue. The gtk
version should be fixed to display the text on several lines.
