Bug Description


  * Expanding the scrolled windows for backup or restore progress in deja-dup are just one line high, making them unreadable.

[ Test Case ]

  * Install Ubuntu 16.10 final or 17.04 daily.
  * Open deja-dup and configure a backup location.
  * Start a backup and the Details during a running backup, you'll see the scrolled window is just one line high.

After installing the patched daja-dup package following the same steps will result in the backup/restore progress scrolled windows defaulting to several lines of readable output.

[ Regression Potential ]

  * None.

There isn't a debdiff here yet to sponsor, so I'm unsubscribing the team.
