Bug Description

I reported a bug earlier about this problem bug 341803 and Alexander determined it should be split into two parts.

This part of the original bug report involves the fact that the name displayed in nm-applet and probably in notify-osd is much too long for the Ericsson F3507g mobile broadband card.

I believe this is fixed as it now just says "Mobile Broadband" no reference to the device name at all.

chris its just hidden when you only have one broadband device. So maybe our udev fixes fixed this for you.
