When the formatting of the status/whiteboard etc. fields was fixed (i.e. to make them longer) the fix wasn't pushed to process_bug.cgi, as it still shows up smaller and scrunched to the right side.
Nochum: 2 years on, we don't know what the fix you were referring to did. Also, process_bug uses the same template code as show_bug, so displays the fields in the same way. If this problem is still present, please explain it in more detail and reopen this bug. Thanks :-) Gerv
This was fixed it seems. Sorry, it's been two years since I filed this so I can't point you to the bug that actually brought this buggy behavior. If I see it again I will be sure to post something here.
