Does anyone else find the "Network Status" annoying lately? Recently they added an item to it that takes up more than one line, so that every time it comes up the whole page is pushed down a line for a few seconds. Really annoying when trying to click on a news link and the thing moves out from under the mouse pointer.

Please Xnet, either set a maximum character limit for the Network Status headlines, or just make the thing always 2 lines high.

Have they fixed it?  Currently there is 2 items and on my computer both is 1 line.

It depends on the text size (or zoom) and font. I get that on 100% but not on 110%.
