Openoffice.org Impress UI element showing bad placement/dimensions
OOo is not a true gtk2 application, it has some cunning where the gtk stuff is
rendered into pre-sized areas, so the gtk layout is not in operation. Which is
why it's of different sizes that you expect. There's nothing planned in the very
short term to change this. Unless there is a specific example of a widget or
something which has regressed from an earlier version of OOo to the current one.
