Bug Description

Just upgraded from 11.10 to Precise using the KDE upgrader on a Dell Mini 10v. The display is 576 pixels tall and the only choice that was visible was the one to view the list of obsolete packages to be removed. I could tab around to the one I wanted and hit enter to complete the upgrade, but I had to know it was there.
