Bug Description

Subset bug from https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/841899

Remove the ellipsising ("...") of filters too long to fit into their box. Each notch's box only needs to be length of it's label (they don't all need to be the same width). See the visual design.

Refer to the visual designs that are available @ https://chinstrap.canonical.com/~sabdfl/12_10/desktop_and_netbook/dash/

Getting rid of the ellipse is a bit of an issue.
The range labels may look ok in english, but translated strings may be longer and cause the filter widget to require space greater than the filter bar width.

I think we need a new design for the range widget which is scalable to any situation. An example of this would be a dual control slider which allows you to drag two grippers between the values.

What about elliding the text with a fadeout, similar to the one used in windows' title bars when the text is too long to fit in them.
