zenity dialogs have excessive height and/or width
When starting the unsafe browser in Tails 3.0~beta1, the "Do you really want to launch the Unsafe Browser?" dialog has a lot bigger height than would be necessary. I encountered the same issue in dialogs in Tails Server, so I already know the solution to this is to disable word wrapping. In zenity this can be done with
--no-wrap. I did not look for other zenity dialogs which might also be affected.

Ouch, that's supposed to have been fixed a couple years ago. Can you please how this relates to #7234, https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=702295 and https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670496?

Seems to be the same problem, which was somehow reintroduced in Stretch. I also saw the same in the "Upgrade to 3.0~beta2" dialog today. What's striking is that all the height is exactly filled when you minimize the width manually (see the attached screenshot).

Do you intend to work towards having this bug fixed in Tails 3.0 (and ideally, upstream and in Debian Stretch), or should I?
Like I wrote in the description, a workaround is to use
--no-wrap. I think this is an acceptable fix for Tails 3.0. I don't have time to put more work into figuring out what caused this bug to reappear and fixing things upstream.

I reopoend the bugs at GNOME (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670496) and debian (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=702295).
I see two possible workarounds:
- building our own package with a patch (yet to write)
- adding a
Do we have a preffered option?

After investigating the issue, it turns out it's related to a change or a bug in new in GTK: zenity 3.22.0 built with GTK 3.14.5-1+deb8u1 doesn't have the issue. The same zenity built with GTK 3.22.9-3 has the issue. I reported my findings upstream, but won't do more for now.

I proposed a patch that fixes the issue at https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=670496#c12.
