Attached file Screencast
Here is a screencast of the issue.

This only happens on Linux.  I checked on Mac and Windows and I can't reproduce the behaviour.  It also appears to only happen with the Clear Recent History dialog.  There is a similar UI for Bookmarks Details in the Bookmark Organizer and it does not display this behaviour.

Here's a YouTube link for those that don't want to download the attachment.

Here's the resize code:

Does anyone know if window.resizeBy() is (sometimes) borked?
I just tried this in a VM and definitely cannot reproduce this bug there.  I can however reproduce it on Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit Native from two separate machines.
Yeah, I'm using a VM.
I can also reproduce this on the Bookmarks Properties dialog.

1. Right click a bookmark
2. Click Properties
3. Click the arrow button beside Tags repeatedly

Quick update.  I just tried this on my laptop at home and I can't reproduce this bug.  I am running Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit.  Apart from the test machine in the QA lab being 32-bit, it also has an NVidia card with the proprietary driver version 173 installed.  My laptop has an Intel GMA950 graphics chip.  I can't help but wonder if the driver is causing this to happen.
I think this is a widget bug, since the callers don't seem to do anything unusual here.  Moving the bug accordingly.
