Expanded the controls in r15170

You'll have to find a translation which can fit in those places. Sorry,
but those controls already are as wide as the whole dialog. Try
abbreviating some words.

Also expanded in r15170

Again, there's no room to expand those controls more...

That's true for many languages. But you should consider abbreviating the
translation if possible - there's just so much room for the controls...
