Description of problem:

I decided to change my resolution to 1600x1200 on FC3.
I did that (painfully), increased font sizes, and increased the panel 
size. I have the clock applet and the dictionary applet on the bottom
panel. The clock applet goes from 1-row of text to 2-rows of text
when the panel size is increased. The dictionary applet does the same
thing. Neither asks me whether I want them to be in 1-row or 2-rows
(which is a bug - dictionary looks horrendous in 2 rows). Furthermore
the cutoff point between 1 and 2 rows does not make any sense - the
clock applet switches to 2-row display when I can't even read all of
the 2nd row, and the dictionary applet does the same (bug). 

P.S. Is there any way to specify icon and widget sizes in GNOME?
I increased the text sizes, but the icons and widgets remain
ridiculously small so my desktop looks horrible at 1600x1200.

~30 days no reply. If there is no interest
in this bug please let me know so I can close it.
I'm clearing my old bugs from bugzilla.

If things are too small at such a high resolution, perhaps you should
just switch back to a smaller resolution?

The issue with the clock text is the only real bug I see here - its
being worked on upstream, so lets just track it there:
