Description of problem:
During the installation of RPMS (last part of what anaconda does) in
graphical mode, with Dutch used as the language used during
installation makes the installer sometimes a bit "jumpy". The reason
for this is that the line:

"Installing package: <package name>"

is translated with

"Installeren van pakket: <package name>"

which is slightly longer. When combined with a package that has a long
name too the text wraps and forces anaconda to reallign its widgets.
This makes anaconda look a bit jumpy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get fresh FC2
2. choose Dutch as installation language
3. sit back and enjoy

Actual Results:  anaconda looks jumpy!

Expected Results:  I don't want no jumping anaconda!

Additional info:

There are two solutions: either make the Dutch translation a bit
shorter (instead of "Installeren van pakket" just say "Installeren
van:", it will still make sense. Another solution is to let anaconda
use a fixed layout and never let it rearrange its widgets.

This should be better in the devel tree
