The text for non-expandable tree nodes should be aligned with 
the text of expandable tree nodes.

For example, in the Preferences dialog, one sees:
(Note: using ">" for expansion control)

> Appearance
> Navigator
> Mail and Newsgroups
> Composer
Software Installation
> Advanced
Debug

which not only looks very poor, but also leads to great 
confusion in understanding the heirarchy when nodes are 
expanded.

In this example, "Software Installation" and "Debug" should 
be indented so the text aligns with their peers, eg:

> Appearance
> Navigator
> Mail and Newsgroups
> Composer
  Software Installation
> Advanced
  Debug


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at the tree layout in the Preferences dialog
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Got this garbarge:

> Appearance
> Navigator
> Mail and Newsgroups
> Composer
Software Installation
> Advanced
Debug


Expected Results:  
Align the text, eg:

> Appearance
> Navigator
> Mail and Newsgroups
> Composer
  Software Installation
> Advanced
  Debug
