Description David Ferguson 2012-02-10 18:29:17 UTC
Description of Problem:

When committing multiple files to an svn repository, the commit message textbox is resized incorrectly.  It is a few pixels tall, and you cannot see the text inside of it.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Add quite a few number of files to source control (in my case, svn)
2. Select the solution and review changes using a right mouse click
3. Select a good number of the files and type in a commit message while you have a multiple selection (in my case, not all of the files)
4. Press the commit button.
5. A commit window should appear containing only the files you selected.  The commit message that was written (in my case, multiple lines) is not visible since the textbox is sized to only 1 or 2 pixels high.

Actual Results:

The commit message cannot be read because the textbox on the commit window is sized too small (the width is fine, only 1 or 2 pixels in height).

Expected Results:

The commit textbox should show at least a few lines and be scrollable.

Additional Information:

Using Ubuntu 10.11 (Unity, in VirtualBox under windows) with MonoDevelop 2.8.6

I can't see why this would happen based on our existing code, but I modified how we generate the UI to try to ensure it always gets a decent size allocation. The fix should be in MonoDevelop 2.8.8 (or higher). It must be a quirk in Unity that it allocates sizes slightly different to how we expect.

I'll grab the latest shortly and check it out.
