Bug#213669: cdebconf-newt-udeb: progress bar dialog changes size all the time, which is ugly

Package: cdebconf-newt-udeb
Version: N/A; reported 2003-10-01
Severity: normal

With the "progress bar status text wrapping" patch that was made at
debcamp, the dialog changes size all the time (it changes height) to
make room for the new text. When the text changes frequently (like
installing packages from a fast source) this makes the dialog box change
size back and forth all the time, which flickers and is really really

I'd propose keeping it at a fixed height (say, three lines) and simply
cropping the text if it is larger than that -- alternatively, make the
minimum height three lines and making it expand above that, which at
least reduces the flickering considerably.
