Summary14406: 'Ranking' Question with Computed Answers Is Allocating Insufficient Row Height

I am working on a survey where answers to a 'ranking' question are taken from the responses to an earlier ranking question. Everything worked fine on 3.14.2 but after upgrading to 3.15.5, the text of the computed answers is cut off at the bottom because the rows are not high enough. The computed text is fine - I can read it after I drag it to the answer box, even though the row height is still too small (I only allow one answer, so the answer can spill into the following space. If I use static answers, the row heights are fine. I have attached a screenshot showing the ranking display with computed answers and another one with static answers. I have also attached an export of a demo survey.

I had a look at the generated HTML. The first ranking has three <li> tags with style="height: 0px;". The second ranking question has style="height: 20px;".

The problem occurred with both the Fruity and Vanilla themes.

Steps To Reproduce

Create a ranking question where the answers are computed based on an earlier ranking question.

OK, semi fixed in 3.15.6 (last version), since moving from height to max-height.
In 3.15.5 : you can disable same choice height and same list height.
