Should calculate width rather than hard-code.

I have resolved the fonts issue, I noticed when testing on my laptop the fonts look like the following...

The problem is in a package you install when you install WINE emulator. Just remove the package and WINE will continue to work and the JRE will not get its fonts overridden.

sudo apt-get remove fonts-unfonts-core

The fix was found here...
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openjdk-7/+bug/937200
The issue does not occur with the new default JRE 7 only with Open JDK, we should probably file an issue on their tracker. But as you see it is also Oracle's fault, so I am not sure.

This ticket should probably be closed as it is not really our fault, its the package, WINE's and JRE's fault, I tried and tried to force an override of those fonts with no luck, so unless we want to write our own look and feel till they get off their lazy asses and fix the JRE, I am assuming we should just tell people to uninstall that package.

NOTE! Also be aware if you remove the above WINE package you may need to restart after switching themes, eg. to Nimbus, to allow the controls to properly resize with the new font.

Fixed when we implemented different themes. A residual bug is mentioned above, but out of our control.
