Hi Jiri, hi all,

Hmm, what about to show text only if the queue is either disabled or does not
accept jobs (and icon if enabled + accepting)? If one sees an 'x' icon, he
has really no clue what it means unless we have tool tips. Since in most of
the cases all queues are enabled and accepting jobs, it would show nasty
scrollbar only in rare cases.

OK, having wording only in cases when the queue is not perfectly
operational makes sense.
It is much more obvious to the user what's the matter with the queue
then having just an icon.
I changed that in:

Cu,

Martin
