I don't see this bug in current F15; please do a system update and see
if you still hit it.

it's not so much 'missing' as 'GNOME doesn't do that any more', and yes,
it's already being discussed in Bugzilla -
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=680876 .

As for the second, when the text is too long that will happen, but it
looks like in your test it's getting cut off much too short; again, I
don't see this in current F15, so please do a system update and try
again. If you're using live images to test, please check with the latest
