In fact, what I observed was not true. When I checked it again, I found
that not all cases had this problem. Only one or two did. And the lines
with this problem happened to be long enough to touch the dialog border.
So, I tend to believe it's newt's problem.
Regarding how this affects d-i, I'd say it's nothing near a show-stopper.
(As I said, only one or two cases are found.) It could be enabled as-is.
But, of course, fixing the problem would make it perfect.
