Target version:3.3


This probably has something to do with my high dpi:

$ xdpyinfo | grep -B2 resolution
screen #0:
dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (294x165 millimeters)
resolution: 166x166 dots per inch

OS is Gentoo, DE is KDE.

mail-client/sylpheed-3.3.0 was built with the following:
USE="crypt ipv6 ldap (multilib) nls spell ssl -oniguruma -pda -xface" ABI_X86="64"

Also this dialog window is not even resizeable, so there's no way to read that text.

I believe that this issue is identical to bug 166:

  • Status changed from New to Confirmed

As a workaround, the setup dialog became resizable (r3347).

The dialog actually should have an optimal size, depending on dpi.
