Bug Description

I came across this minor but annoying behaviour of Eye of GNOME. When making changes to some images (i.e. rotate the picture to the correct position) the program prompts user for confirmation when he tries to close it.
EOG asks user to confirm the changes he has made to very single picture, exposing a list of the pictures that were modified.

The problem is that the list is costrained into a very tight box, so that the user can only see the first element; there can be two or twelve, only the first one will be shown and there is not even the chance to enlarge the box since its dimension is fixed. Moreover, with Ubuntu's overlay scrollbars there is not even clear that the list can be scrolled down since the bar is almost invisible.

I find this is pointless and I supoose should be very easy to fix.

Sorry, I meant to report the bug upstream but had little time and days passed by. Thank to Sebastien for reporting it, great to see it already fixed!
