Yup, looks much better on Mac - in fact if anything it's gone a bit
too far the other way. Maybe try 1 or 2d less than you've done. The
SQL tab still needs similar treatment though.

See the screenshots.

Yes it still occurs :-(. The screenshots show what I mean.

It's there on the Mac (in both dialogs). I can't currently run Windows
(other tasks already running in vmware), so cannot test there atm.

A new problem on dlgCasts - the source and target type combo boxes are
invisible unless I resize(!). I only need to enlarge the dialogue by
1px or so and they both magically appear. I suspect this is unrelated
to the actual size, but perhaps we need to kick the sizers after
loading the dialogue to force them to resize everything. If memory
serves there's a recalculate function.
