  Critical installer dialog boxes not resizable

Status in “ubuntu-release-upgrader” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Some critical dialog boxes are not resizable.

  Most importantly, the dialog box which allows you to view the diff
  when a package tries to install an updated version of a  modified
  config file.

  The example I had last only showed me two or three lines of a huge
  diff at a time.. certainly insufficient to review the changes

  Also annoyingly, the install dialog is not resizable, even when the terminal window showing the update is expanded.

  This poor dialog usability through lack of resizing reminds me far too
  strongly of Windows.
