Make alert dialog show multiple lines for messages
The following is a text representation of an alert dialog I have in my [[FreeNAS]] 8.0.3 right now:
o WARNING: The volume z64 (ZFS) status is
o OK: The volume u64 (UFS) status is HEALTHY
o OK: The volume u128 (UFS) status is HEALTHY
The first message is cut off and semi-useless (or the problem is that the status isn't evaluated correctly?). The dialog should perhaps allow for longer messages.

Sorry, should have clarified.
I can not do that, because the pools are long gone now :) However, the status message I mentioned came from the following situation:
I had created a zpool on an mfid0 HW RAID device, and when doing so I checked the 4096 block size checkbox (didn't really know whether it applied to RAID VDs or not). Apparently this is not something that [[FreeNAS]] likes, because later on when I went to remove this volume in the GUI, the dialog box processing the removal just kept spinning. After some minutes I reloaded the interface, and I also rebooted the machine.
The status now was in the GUI the errors in the original post here, but there was no zpool listed when doing
zpool status. So the zpool was removed it seems. I then simply went to delete it in the database and it's fine.
I did see that there were some errors in the console when I created the zpool initially, see http://grab.by/bzH3 . However it did work fine from what I could tell by some very little shuffling of files to and from it. But I can't say for sure.
Probably the 4096 block forcing shouldn't be done with an mfid device.
