When adding a new account to Mozilla Mail, I am seeing a dialog on the right
side of the add account window, instead of the window being the right size for
everything to be displayed on it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Mozilla Mail
2.Click "Add Account" in Mail & Newsgroup account settings
Actual Results:  
There is a scrollbar in the window

Expected Results:  
The window should be the right size and there should not be a scrollbar to view
the rest of the contents

This is a screenshot of the window

Ok, I made this screenshot of the Window using IrfanView.

Oh, I'm guessing it might be a difference between Windows 98 (which I am using)
and Windows XP (which you seem to be using)

Also works on Win2k. The text lines in the attached screenshot have a greater
distance than on my computer.
One also could switch to a larger font, so that scrollbar has to show up sooner
or later...

Yeah, Mozilla must not be using the font size, etc. as a variable to
automatically adjust the height of the Window.

This WFM under the modern theme. Under Classic and under Smoke, I see the problem

Bug 278067 is about this problem on Thunderbird.  Bug 278067 comment 7 indicates a workaround.

As with comment 6, I was seeing this problem with the suite in a profile using the Modern theme, but not in one using the Classic theme.  I tried the workaround in Seamonkey 1.0 and it did revert the wizard to a normal size that didn't require scrollbars.

I think the dimensions stored in localstore.rdf are leftovers from an older version -- after deleting that section, after I next exit the suite, I find there is an entry stored in localstore.rdf for AccountWizard, but not with any dimensions.
