--- Comment #7 from Adolfo Jayme <fito at libreoffice.org> ---
At least in Windows and Linux operating systems, when a dialog contains more
tabs than its width allows, the active tab will always be displayed next to its
container, and its row will shift to be below, or closest to you, of you can
picture a literal stack of folder tabs. That is the metaphor, and it’s an
expected behavior. During the ’90s, it used to be common for a tab strip to
overflow by remaining in a single row but sliding (as Firefox does today), but
this was abandoned because it hid the options from the user, hurting
discoverability (not an issue for Firefox, where the tabs are actually the
content the user explicitly opened).

This makes it a WONTFIX… Except that in 6.0, this dialog was made a little
wider so that it can accomodate the tabs in a single row, so you won’t see two
rows anymore.
