Changes (by wenzeslaus):

  * status:  new => closed
  * resolution:  => fixed


 All reported issues were fixed in the past. I have tested 6.4.3svn
 (r52855) and 7 (r52863) and everything works now. Closing ticked. Details
 and discussion bellow.

  * ''manage tables tab: [Add] and [Rename] buttons fall off...'': layout
 was changed and this should be ok now

  * ''column name: if you put in something silly like ";;"...gets added to
 the list...'': ok now (probably the handling of events was changed)

  * ''"Column name: _" ...put the word "new"...'': Now there is a field
 named 'Column' in group box 'Add column'. Someone could find label 'Name'
 (instead of 'Column') more describing. But this is probably mater of

  * ''if you add a new column then add another...'': No such behavior after
 multiple 'Add' or 'Rename' now.

  * ''if you add a new column the data-length value...'' and ''after adding
 a new column...'': Both 'Browse data' and 'Manage tables' are reloaded
 after adding/renaming column. It takes some time and the refresh is done
 even on SQL error (e.g. wrong column name) which is probably useless but
 everything is fresh. Both 'Reload' (from context menu) and 'Refresh' do
 not make the newly added columns disappear.

  * ''Layer manger... "Show attribute data"...'': In atm you can browse
 data, edit data, manage table and manage layers (or better say manage
 layer-table connections). The menu item in layer context menu and the
 tooltip for toolbar item are only 'Show attribute table'. But I think that
 'Show attribute table' is sufficient. 'Open attribute table' would be
 similar. 'Show/edit attribute table' and any other text longer than 3
 words is harder to read. We can consider another menu item like 'Edit
 attribute table' somewhere but I think that it is not necessary. And about
 'Show/edit attribute table' text, we have to keep in mind that editing is
 of course disabled when map is from different mapset.
