Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

With a recent update, the menu items for events in indicator-datetime have been changed so they don't force the menu to grow in width. This works with the calendar widget visible, because it is wide enough to reserve a comfortable amount of space for the events.

With the calendar disabled, the width of the menu seems to depend on something else. The result is there are about six characters visible for each event's description, which is simply not enough to be useful. Either the events or the menu itself should reserve a minimum width separate from the calendar.

The width of menu when calender is disabled should remain the same as when it is enabled.

ah, this is caused by a one line fix for items with too large a width...

I think I need to set a minimum width on the appointment items.
