Steps how to reproduce  with  SeaMonkey German 2.39 final Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0 from official download area)  Gecko/20100101  Firefox/42.0  Build 20151103191810  (Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit and Chatzilla version 0.9.92:

1. Launch SeaMonkey + Chatzilla for any chat server, for example 
   irc://moznet/
2. Menu 'IRC → Join Channel' from server TAB
   Join Channel dialog will open, some UI elements might be truncated at 
   the right. 
3. If no truncation, click [Update]
   » after channel list will have been updated, left from [Update] button
     a (new) string will appear with a text like "Channel list for network
     has been saved at January 25th 2016"
   Problem: Position of UI elements of that dialog (3 Buttons and 2
            input lines) depend on right end position of that string.
            if the string is too long right UI elements will be truncated
            at right dialog border when you newly open the dialog

Additional information:
a) a single click on the right border of the dialog will heal the problem

Works for me in en-US.
Comment #0 was apparently written by on-the-fly translation from the German UI.
In the en-US version I see the following (SeaMonkey 2.43a1 linux-x86_64 with cZ nightly dated 2016-01-23 from (at the moment) the most recent subfolder of http://james-ross.co.uk/mozilla/chatzilla/nightly/builds/0.9.92/ ) :

- The button is named [Refresh Now] rather than [Update]
- The text which appears left of it is (for instance) "Network's channel list cached on 28 January 2016"
- By default (in my maximized window on a 1280x1024 screen) the dialog opens up amply wide enough for text and button with about one inch of empty space between them
- The dialog is resizable but I cannot make it narrower than the cached-date text _plus_ the button. No matter what I do, I see no clipping at the right edge.

IIUC this problem may or may not be felt depending on the respective length of cached-date text and button text vs. dialog opening size depending on the UI language: adding l18y keyword to express this language dependency.
