Bug Description

As you can see in attached screenshot, all labels in size filter buttons are ellipsized to "..."

I suspect this could depend on current (Italian) translation: I've added a space between number and unit in all those strings, as required by local conventions ("1KB" > "1 kB", "10MB" > "10 MB" and so on, see [1] and subsequent). I'll check it in original English version ASAP.

Ideally, buttons should resize themself in order to make room for labels, but if this is impossibile, could be good to prevent translation by now, and find a proper solution in 12.04

This also occurs when the language is set to Canadian English, see attached screenshot.

What I would suggest to do here is have a dynamic padding used (passed to) for the text-rendering call in class DashStyle. That the best/fasted way to fix this for most cases. It's mostly a rendering issue. Mikkel, poke me if you want to off-load this to me or ask me for hints, if you want to tackle it yourself.
