That's the theory, but in my experience many string clipping problems
occur only on Linux which uses bigger font size by default. Physical
dialog coordinates scale with the font size but the algorithm is not
perfect. So I wouldn"t worry about Windows and Mac should be OK, too
(or at least not worse).
