I've just had a look at how the help dialogs look now, and they are much
better. But they are now on the narrow side with lines wrapped too soon.
This can be seen in localechooser with the help dialog for locales, but is
even more visible in the help dialog for the main screen of partman which
now only just fits the height of the screen.
The dialogs should not cover the full width of the screen, but to use only
half seems a bit of waste. Leaving something like 10% or 15% on each side
would look better I think.
I've no idea if/how this is possible, but it would be great if you could
look into it.
