The display name in the Address Book card view is truncated at 7 characters. For 
example, if the display name is "Bugs Bunny", the Address Book card view would 
show the display name as "Bugs Bu".

Note that the data has not been lost - if you open the card up to edit it, the 
entire display name is available.

Build ID - 2000-02-09-08

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Address Book (Tasks | Address Book)
2. Select a card from the top right pane that contains a display name longer 
than 7 characters.

Expected result: The display name in the card view matches the display name in 
the top right pane and the display name that is shown in the Edit Card view.
Actual result: The display name in the card view is truncated at 7 characters. 
Note that no data has been lost - the full display name is still present in the 
top right pane and in the Edit Card view.

Arghhh! While filing this bug - I resized the window (at the suggestion of 
Hangas) - and the display name appeared in full. I cannot make the display name 
truncate again, but I suspect it has something to do with toggling the "View | 
Show Name as" selector.

Marking fixed.  I think that this was fixed by someone.  I don't see this 
happening now.
