In certain locations, messages are obscured or overlapped by other interface features. For example, messages about the outcome of a game (shown to the right of the main board) are cut off towards the end. It's most inconvenient in the bughouse panel at the bottom - the latest partner tell is always obscured by the partner's held pieces, making it hard to read, and the partner's time remaining is often invisible when highlighted (to indicate it's their move). All three of these are shown in the attached image.

    So someone actually uses eboard for bughouse, I'm shocked. I'll look into fixing the bughouse pane, but unfortunately I'll only have time to work on it a couple of months from now.

    If you have any feature request, or suggestion for a complete rework of that pane, submit as a feature request, so that I know what to do when I have the time. I am not a bughouse player and I don't really know how a good bughouse interface should be.
