Keyboard shortcut restoring shortcut cut short when localized

Affected version

I’m using Ubuntu 20.04 and Wayland, with gnome-shell currently at version 3.36.1-4ubuntu1. (I originally filed this on Launchpad.)

Bug summary

When trying to start a virtual machine with Gnome Boxes, I get a prompt about keyboard shortcuts. The prompt text is localized, but translated back to English it says:

Boxes wants to inhibit shortcuts

You can restore shortcuts by pressing Super+Escape.

In my locale (Finnish), it says

Sovellus Boksit haluaa rajoittaa pikanäppäinten toimintaa.

Voit palauttaa pikanäppäinten toiminnan painamalla Super...

(sic; see attached photo)

So the actual key combination is truncated, defeating the point of that part of the text.

This isn’t a localization error (AFAICT, based on the translation source). Rather, it’s caused by the text being forced to fit on a single line of an arbitrarily fixed width, instead of wrapping to span as many lines as needed.
