Hey all, I'm having a bizarre problem here

I recently had to do a fresh reinstall of OS 9.2.1, and when I installed iTunes 2.0.4, it didn't display correctly. For some odd reason, it started clipping the text in the main window(s).

Artist has become "artis," album looks like "alburr" etc. Some song titles are actually clipped in mid-letter

I tried the usual assortment of corrections, only to have no luck. Deleted the iTunes preferences, installed an earlier version of iTunes (2.0.2), booted up with just Base Extensions (and iTunes extensions) activated, and still no luck.

Anybody have any ideas? THis is kind of annoying me here.

Thanks all

have you tried moving the bars across the top??
i know it's obvious, but...
click on the artist, or album title bars, at the dividers, and try to move them....

Yeah, I tried that when I first noticed the problem. No dice, unfortunately.

The really bizzare thing is that the clipping occurs at a different point in each piece of text. I just checked 2 tracks, and the clipping occured at the 12th letter on one name, and the 14th on another.

Really strange, isn't it?

Sigh. Someone in the apple forums told me to reinstall the OS. As if I would do that for this, especially now (finals next week).
