Description Len DiMaggio 2006-07-17 15:37:18 UTC
The actions strings defined in *Action in the frysk.monitor.actions package can
inadvertently result in strings being displayed in the GUI with trailig blanks. 

The name of the action is usually concatinated with the name of the argument it
acts upon.

There doesn't seem to be much of a user impact, but the additional blank
characters can cause automated Dogtail tests to fail. 

For example, the Log action type previously displayed as "Log Generic Action"
was replaced with "Log event" - but this is displayed in the GUI as "Log event 
" - the trailing blanks are impossible to see visually.

Can we trim the strings before the GUI displays them? Thanks...
