Have two "bugs" that I have been struggling with, but discovered to my
surprise that these bugs do not occur under Carbon, nor in Windows.

The first is that the hover text behavior in a properties viewer only gives
a single line; in Carbon, the hover text shows the entire contents of the
property. For example, if the property has a multi-line text value and I am
running on Carbon, and I hover over that property in the viewer, the
hovertext comes up and shows all lines. However, in Cocoa, only the first
line is shown.

The second is that I have a viewer that reads and displays an XML file with
a variety of decorators, etc. It is a rule trace from Drools. I am
inserting two facts into Drools and then the display is a trace of the rules
that fire. In Carbon, this viewer works perfectly, but in Cocoa, one of the
facts is completely blank. The code for this is complex and I am not
including it here - the main issue is that everything is fine in Carbon and
not fine in Cocoa.

Not at all sure if these are SWT issues or RCP issues.

Hi Mike,

If these work on the other platforms then they're probably bugs in swt's
Cocoa port, and you should log separate reports with swt at
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Platform &component=SWT .
Be sure to provide reproducable steps (eg.- is there a quick scenario that
makes a property view entry take multiple lines? Where is Drools from and
what is the XML file that shows the problem? etc.)
