1) Connect to a host that does not exist in dns (so that the status screen is visible for longer)
2) Look at the connection status messages
3) Wait for connection timeout

"Searching for host..."
Is always cut off by one letter when it is the only status message onscreen, resulting in:
"Searching for hos..."
Once another message is visible, either by the connection timing out or hitting cancel, the full text is shown as expected.
