Expected: buttons should appear wholly when dilaog is opened.

I forgot to mention - this dialog remembers its size, so to see this fix you must 
delete your profile each time, so you see the default size for the dialog.

Oh I hust realised - my patch makes the window wider than 480...

Is this forbidden? Do we try to fit in 640x480?

DOH DOH DOH. Need to go to bed.

480 is the height! Idiot! Sorry for all the spam!

Comment 7

480 is still to large to fit on a 640x480 screen on most OSes, due to
taskbar/panel etc..

Yes, but I didn't alter the height, I altered  the width, which is now 500 which
is well within the 600 figure for the screen width.

I was just being dumb and sleepy.

The increase in width to 600 helps, but still could be better. See if I can work
up some xul mojo to make it better.

We'll never get this approved at this stage.  Minus for N6 RTM.

Here's the best patch for this bug, tested in both skins.
actually, I suck. I was using an existing profile which had remembered larger 
window dimensions which led me to believe that this patch fixed the bug. Well, 
it doesn't, but I now have one that does (thanks to jag for the suggestion).

a 1-line patch that fixes this bug (actually fixes, tested with new profiles)
Here's a description of what this patch does:

a call to 'sizeToContent()' (a method defined on 'window') is called from the 
load handler attached to the window. 

This function sizes the window to fit the content inside it. It is skin 
independant and ensures the window is big enough to hold the widgets inside.

Make this "need info" now that we have the correct courtesy of "jag".

Gramps just told me to rtm+ this bug while we just met in the stairway. That's
my story, and I'm sticking to it.
