Right. I wondered if this was the problem, but couldn't reproduce it.

Ah right -- I had thought it would go across the left column (which is the
longest) as well.

This patch looks good.

(On my system, to see the whole width of a typical vote, I needed a window of
at least 1000x600, but that's sufficient to allow this to be useful on a lot
of common netbooks, such as Eee 901.)
