[Bug 270838] [NEW] KDE System Settings: Several config windows too big to be usable

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kde-systemsettings

Several of the configuration dialogues that can be accessed via "System
Settings" are far too big and do not scale when the window is resized.
One of the worst offenders is "Regional & Language" - this screen is so
big, that it does not even display fullscreen on 1280x1024 without
having to use scrollbars, which makes using this configuration screen
very cumbersome. Most of the other configuration screens require
fullscreen on 1280x1024 just to avoid scrollbars. None of the screens
seem to scale properly when resizing the window.

Strangely enough, as far as I can see, the *same* screens scale
perfectly when used with the original "kcontrol" (KDE Control Centre)
command. "Regional & Accessibility" for example works just fine in a
*much* smaller window - no scrollbars necessary. Unfortunately, kcontrol
does not seem to be part of the default menu.
