constant actor icon won't automatically re-size since 2.3.
For actor 'Constant' and 'String Constant', Kepler GUI used to automatically replace long text with its first a few characters followed by '...'. I validated it in Kepler 2.2. But since Kepler 2.3 (also in Kepler trunk), these two actors won't re-size anymore. All the text in their value parameter is displayed in GUI. It is very unfriendly when the text is very long.
I attached a demo workflow and its displays in Kepler 2.2 and 2.3.

I've backed out a portion of this change:

- [r60470] /trunk/ptolemy/vergil/icon/AttributeValueIcon.java,
BoxedValueIcon to ignore the default displayWidth and
displayHeight parameters and render the full string value of the
attribute in its icon.
I've sent email to Charles asking for a use case that requires the icon
to not be truncated.
This should be left open until Charles and I reach a consensus about this.
