"Settings" window too large in resolution 800x600

Synopsis: "Settings" window too large in resolution 800x600
Description of Problem:
When I choose Tools->Settings from the menu I get a dialog window that
fits on the screen and the categories on the left has a scrollbar. By
selecting any category but "Mail Preferences" the size of the window is
unaltered and the scrollbar is still there (i.e. everything works as
When I choose the Mail Preferences category though, the window is
enlarged and doesn't fit on the display (it's overlapped by the gnome
panel). The enlargement of the window makes the category scrollbar
dissapear and even when I choose a different category I'm unable to
decrease the size of the window to make it as large as was before.
So we have two issues here:
1. The Tools->Settings->Mailpreferences window is too large with the
screen resolution 800x600.
2. A window resizing bug in the Tools->Settings window after the Mail
Preferences category has been selected.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
See "Description of Problem".
How often does this happen?
I'm using the standard desktop fonts slightly decreased in size; Window
title in 10 pt and all other text in 9 pt.
