Description of problem:
During the progress-bar stage of installing, if a package being installed has an

blip upwards briefly, and then back down as the next package has a shorter

This happened too fast for me to see which package it was, but it looked like

What language is this with?

Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2005-05-23 19:10:16 UTC
English -- possibly British English, I can't remember if that choice gets made
before that point in the install or not.

I can't remember what packages it was that made it jump, but I'm convinced I saw
it; I suspect things like
and others in the jakarta-commons-* family.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-23 20:19:40 UTC
I'm not seeing here although I can believe that it could happen.  Put in the
change to ensure that the string stays short enough such that the change
shouldn't occur, although that's a workaround at best.
