It's fine in English - localization spacing issue.

This issue is not a localization spacing issue as the nib is not on the localized folder (as you can see by it's path) and the date displayed is the same as the OS complete date.
In English is fine because the complete date (Wednesday, December 2, 2009) is much shorter than for pt_PT (quarta-feira, 2 de Dezembro de 2009).
The problem is just that the field either is too wide or it doesn't have a fixed size so to wrap the date correctly.

What's the correct way to solve this? We could ellipsize the text, or expand the window, or just use a shorter date format and hope it doesn't overflow then?

Using a shorter date would be a valid solution.

I agree with sphynx who said it would be fine to allow the text to span multiple lines. The icon might need to be made smaller to accomodate, though.

By the way, the icon isn't centred currently, is it?

If we want the shorter date solution, here's a patch. The icon does look slightly off-center, too, yeah.

I found out, in looking at your patch, that we offer the short date already.
