      Description

      In the admin console, on the queue tab, it now truncates queue names after 5 characters and adds an elipses. You can no longer tell queue names apart that differ only after the first 5 characters without a mouse-over which hurts usability and using the screen as a dashboard for current status.

      Might be better to save horizontal space by word-wrapping some of the longer headers than to shorten queue names which is a rather important part of the display.

      The topics tab truncates around 45 characters, was it a typo on the queue tab?

      Screenshot attached.

        I've set queue name truncating after 50 chars. I have in plan more visual improvements for the console.

        Attached patch to set the queue name truncation length to 50, which matches the topics tab and is more reasonable than the new value of "8"
