Build: 2000-08-26 nightly, Mac OS 9.0

To reproduce:
* Start Mozilla and look at the splash screen.

What you should see:
* The status text is aligned with the left side of the splash screen.

What you actually see:
* The status text is floating about 30 pixels too far to the right.

Well, it's not an XP part of the App, but I'll try there anyway ...

This is just a trivial resource change.

setting to rtm, even though this is trivial, we need to not look shoddy.

I actually like it the way it is now. If you move it too far left, you'll end up
with half of the field unused. I don't believe it would look right if it were to
be centered, either. Slightly offset seems like a good arrangement to me (it
could be moved left, just not flush with the left side of the splash screen).

I centered the text. Looks crappy when doing autoreg, but better otherwise.

Erk. Since autoreg is the *only* thing we show status for (and even if it 
wasn't, it would usually be the thing which took the most time), the status 
text looks even worse now than it did before. The words `Registering native 
component' jump around all over the place depending on the length of the 
component name.

Reopening, reassigning to nobody/helpwanted since I'm guessing Simon probably 
has better things to do than to fiddle further with it. Ideally, the distance 
between the left edge of the splash screen and the left edge of the text should 
be approximately equal to the distance between the bottom edge of the splash 
screen and the bottom edge of the text.
