Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Using RhythmBox on Ubuntu 8.10

I have many radio shows in MP3 format, and the title of these usually includes the date of the show, the name of the show, and the title of that particular episode, e.g.


This is far too long to fit in the default width of the Title field in the dialog box that pops up when I right-click on the track and choose 'Properties'. The width of the box can be extended by dragging the border but it always pops back to the original width when re-opened.

The panel should either 'remember' its new width after adjusting the size or just have a greater width to start with.

Thanks for the report, confirming, it doesn't save the size if you resize it which could be annoying for people with those song formats.
