I use window.sizeToContent() to init window size
it works if I use <textbox> but if I use e.g.

<description align="stretch">

both horizontal and vertical window size is wrong. For instance, buttons don't
fit to the window. Maybe the text node structure is not handled right?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create xul 
<description>long text</description>
<button label = "This will not look OK" />
elements to window
2.size window with window.sizeToContent()
3.look the button being shrinked

Actual Results:  
The button is shrinked so that the button text does not fit.
If I have other buttons in a <hbox> aligned right and <description> is the
longest xul element the buttons are not shown at all.

Expected Results:  
calculated the <description> element size right.
