Hi Peter,

Thanks for having a look.  Indeed we’ll need to tweak the preference label widget to word wrap, as does the Qt version. Let’s see what we can find.


PS: I’ve seen no bug reports on this. If this indeed is a problem existing from 2.0 on, does this show that the legacy interface sees little use?
Good question..
I don't known if gerald have some stats from (auto)update tools ?

May be also the issue coming from a change on GTK ?
