Too late for a fix in 70 but we could still take a patch for 71/72.

I think the suggested regressing bug looks most likely here. Moving across to Widget, since that seems most appropriate.

Jim, mind setting a priority?

The child window positions properly but maintains the width pulled from the normalized text box. Pretty corner case, but we'd love a fix!
