the status bar in transmission oscillates ostensibly

transmission (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

Whenever the download speed appearing in the status bar changes the number of ciphers shown (i.e from 11.7 kB to 9.6 kB), the other status bar items move with it.

It might be better if the allocated space to the download speed widget was fixed to maybe about 4 figures, or if the other widgets were fixed. Thus, no oscillation would happen, which is distracting and not pleasant whenever you are close to a boundary (be it 10 kB, 100kB or 1 MB).

I am closing it because the bug has been fixed in the the 1.80 beta in the latest development version of Ubuntu - Lucid Lynx. It won't be fixed in previous versions of Ubuntu because the package doesn't fit the requirements for backporting. See for more information.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.
