Binary package hint: unity

The application title in bold at the top left seems to only show the first word of an application name. I'm assuming that's not intentional. Screenshot attached.

It also does this for "About Me" and "D-Feet" and some others. It does not do it for checkbox and probably a few others.

It only has a short, fixed amount of space, the space that gets taken up
by the window controls in maximised cases. It should put as much of the
app name there as it can, ellided at the end.
