Yes, the only dialog remaining is "Paragraph" dialog. But it will be hard to
change it - will require more than 4 hours IMO.
Also, all dialogs should be checked whether making them not-resizeable (but
not fixed-size of course) makes sense. A lot of dialogs that contan GtkCList
should be made growable IMO.
