I've applied the following patch to my builds. It mitigates the problem,
at least on the screen size of the XO-1.

The correct approach, of course, would be computing the number of rows
from the current width of the window divided by the width of each
column. (patches welcome).

Subject: [PATCH 4/4] _MAX_COLUMNS now 4

The 'My Settings' dialogue no longer overhands on the right on
the XO-1. This change will generally provide better performance
for small screens.
