cdw: output overlap error "50.0% donee"

Package: cdw
Version: 0.1.4-3
Severity: minor

When cdw does 'Write audio CD', a popup box helpfully
shows the track, the fifo %, a progress bar, 
and the percent done.  The text width of the percent 
done is variable; sometimes it decreases, and then the 
user sees text like:

       50.0% donee   

Suggestions for a fix:

Worse.  In the code that prints 'done', add a few quoted spaces
after like this 'done   '.

Better.  The text 'done' shouldn't jump around at all, that's
distracting.  Better to print 'done' only once, and for the numbers
use a fixed width percent field 6 chars wide, from 000.0% to 100.0%, 
or maybe 5 chars wide from 00.0% to 99.9%.  Leading spaces instead 
of zeroes would be even better, just so it's fixed width.  

Hope this helps...
