A common problem with the preferences dialog is that, with languages other than English (such as French) where words/expressions may be longer, the contents require more space and the area becomes horizontally scrollable.
I think it should be set to not scroll horizontally so that it properly expands the width of the dialog as required. This improves user experience and perceived polish. Patch attached.
If someday our prefs dialog's width gets larger than 1024 pixels, then it's a bug and we simply need to organize it better (ie: line breaks, fewer columns, etc).
