  'Details of updates' pane is dysfunctionally tiny

Status in “update-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Software Updater asked me if I want to install 124 MB of "updated
  software". Since I am interested in knowing more about this
  proposition than merely the amout of data that will be transferred, I
  clicked "Details of updates". Instead of showing me details of the
  updates, Software Updater displayed a single generic heading and half
  of the name of one update.

  Even worse, when I click on "Technical description" to view what I
  hope might finally contain details about the updates, the
  dysfunctionally tiny pane shrinks even more—it now shows *no*
  updates—and a new pane appears which tells me what version of
  something is currently installed.

  Screenshots are attached.
