Screenshot of the extra scroll bar

When clicking Update in the Plugin Manager to update from 7.1 to 7.1.1, the license agreement page is just too wide to fit into the displayed dialog box. And hence there appears an unnecessary horizontal scroll bar. See the screenshot attached.

I think the scrollbar is not unnecessary because the text is not fully visible. Nevertheless, the design is really strange and this should be fixed.

If the label and the text area (and the form they are on) are resized so that they fit into the dialog, then the scrollbar will not be necessary. :)

Update with build 201209210001:

By default the components now fit onto the dialog, which is definitely progress.

But something is still... interesting... in the implementation. The dialog is resizeable. If you make it wider and then back to normal width again, the label and combo box and text field stay wide and the horizontal scrollbar appears again. Admittedly most users won't resize the dialog, but I just had to fiddle with it. :)
