Bug Description

I was using update-manager on precise and presented with the partial upgrade dialog where I was told that 2 packages would be removed. I wanted more information about this so clicked the "details" expander which showed me information about what would be removed and upgraded. However, now the update-manager dialog was larger than my display (1280x800) and I was no longer able to see the buttons. This was even after click details again to hide them (the window did not resize smaller).

I had to tab through the options and guess which button was the update one.

In quantal the release upgrading code was moved to a new package ubuntu-release-upgrader hence the two different tasks.
