I also think so.
If really needed, the strings could be filtered out with msggrep (but I
would not recommend it).

I think I'm missing some context here.
I can provide a patch for the two issues:
1] There are three lines between the long description and the short
(This is just removing the "strcat(res, "\n\n");" in
2] The mulitselect may be displayed below the <Continue> button (or
description, which render the selection impossible.
(This is just changing need_separate_window() to compare height-7
(height-9 if the above is not applied) instead of height-5)
However, I'm not sure it is the bug reported by Oded.
Is there a problem with Asian fonts? (a wide caracters, like 望, is as
wide as two ascii characters on a terminal). If the character width is not
taken into account when rewrapping, the lines may need to be rewrapped
later, which may add more lines and could cause the same issue as 2]
Oded, can you point me to the package/template/language which triggers the
issue (a screenshot would be welcome).
(Or maybe the above two points would be sufficient)
