Look at and for two screenshots of the pref panel. On the first one, the available height seems to be fixed and ignores wrapped lines. Probably it should adapt itself or at least be taller.

I had a chat on IRC with LpSolit and I couldn't reproduce the bug with the same system police parameters on my config. I encountered that kind of problem before and removing *.mfasl files solved it. Apparently not in that case. 
Plussing, but can we please get people trying to reproduce this? We can't ship beta 2 with a broken prefpanel ...

I think this is an l10n problem.  The window size (height and width) are fully controlled by localizable preferences, and if languages require greater width to accommodate lengthy strings, they should use a greater width via the appropriate entities.
By the way, for the first screenshot I suspect you're seeing the underlying bug which triggered bug 345572 (wrapping checkboxes screw up containing box height, at a guess), but I haven't tested to be sure.
Talking about the height, making the pref panel taller doesn't help, at least in the first URL from comment 0. The vertical space available for text doesn't adapt to match wrapped lines. Why keeping it so small?

It's really either this or an entity to control height for every single checkbox in preferences, and I (and localizers, I'm sure) would rather not do that.

Whiteboard: [checkin needed (1.8 branch)]
Checked in branch/trunk.  The width issue should be something localizers should handle as needed.
