Simple layout different in Glade's main UI, preview, and actual runtime

I made a simple layout of a window containing a ListBox with a Row and a Button (packed within some boxes). The treatment of the button is different in Glade's main UI, in the Glade preview, and in the actual runtime:
- Glade workspace: button is bottom-aligned, width matches content, window width is much wider than content
- Glade preview: button is top-aligned, width matches content, window width is content width + some margin (leaving a gap to the right of the button)
- actual runtime: button is top-aligned, width matches content, window width matches content
I think the best long-term solution, though this would likely be a lot of work, is to merge the preview layout into the main work area to eliminate the gap between the workspace layout and the actual layout a developer can expect.
Then specific issues, like the gap between the button and window edge that exists in Glade but not in the actual program, could be addressed one at a time.
