[Libreoffice-qa] Why does the "Tools - Options" menu get that wide?

Hello @ll,
be prepared: I will send a couple of different mails with different 
questions, which I noticed since the release of 4.1 for Debian 
Testing AMD64 ... ;)

First one:
When I open LO Version: Build ID: 
40b2d7fde7e8d2d7bc5a449dc65df4d08a7dd38 with installed Germanophone 
help- as well as langpack, go to "Tools – Options – LibreOffice – 
General", I can see the field for the initials, but not the end of 
the field of it. The same applies for the "Back" button at the 
bottom right of the dialog, where I can only see "Rückgän" instead 
of "Rückgängig" in the Germanophone UI ... :( If I open LO Version: Build ID: aeb29afa11b7be87153f048044a2d4af9a87b50c
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64 at 46-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 
2013-10-29_20:58:33 (but I have also seen it on other builds 
before), it is more horrible: The dialog window is too far to the 
right to see the initials field or the text on the "Back" button ... 
:( Is it only on my system? Or can someone confirm it with an other 
OS/architecture/graphics chip or card/driver/something else? With up 
to version 4.0.x that dialog fits from the left to the right side on 
my monitor, without vanishing parts of it ... ;)
