Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

The bookmarks/drives system in the Ubuntu menu is limited to 5 items before it truncates into a folder-view. I use bookmarks *all* the time so having to go across one extra step has really started to get to me. I also mount a lot of network drives, so the drives section does the same. If you're still not with me, here's a picture:

I can see the merits for doing this, but *only* if showing everything would require the menu to have a scroll-bar. At the moment there's no effort to even detect how many entries we could paint - **it's hard-coded!**

Can I please suggest we temporarily boost the hard-coded number to 10, release it and then come up with a better way of addressing the problem?
