The problem get even more complex with internationalization. The translation 
of an English string in French or German can be longer or shorter than the 
original and ruin the geometry of the dialog box.

It will be changed if they are bug reports filed. We have at KDE a new quality 
project : http://kde.ground.cz/tiki-index.php?page=KDE+Quality+Team that aim 
to adress the myriad of small quality problems that still exist in KDE and to 
help developers. Volunteering and adopting one of your pet KDE application as 
a janitor is a good way to contribute back even if you have little free time.
