Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8.0.8) Gecko/20061115 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.8.0.8) Gecko/20061115 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.8

Some tooltips (as generated by 'title' attributes) are truncated with '...' on Linux.  There does not seem to be any pattern as to which texts are truncated and which are not, though it is deterministic.  It is not a function of length.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place this into a document:
  <DIV TITLE="Paste">Tooltip should say 'Paste'</DIV>
2. Hover mouse over the text.

Actual Results:  
The tooltip that appears says "Pas..."

Expected Results:  
The tooltip that appears should say "Paste"

This is consistent across all Linux PCs I've tested, but does not happen on Mac or Windows.  This affects two of the tooltips in Google Docs.  Attached is a minimal test case.

Could you test it in Firefox 2? Firefox 1.5 is soon to EOL.
