Can you or Carol fix this and check it in?

Truncated labels automatically show tooltips.  So we are not a lot of
functionality.  But I  do agree it doesnt look too good.  I am loathe to
changing the size of buttons.  Maybe someone can make the text's font size
to scale down automatically based on content?
Bonus:  This would be a very nice feature addition to the Flex SDK :-)

This was removed a while ago by Justin - rev 1427021 []

days and not weeks/months.
