not much for now...

but using a window manager which can resize the dialog could be helpful (the one i use can do it).

some other window managers will allow you to move the dialog and see the parts which are hidden (ms windows can, the one of mine can't).

well, there is something you could do: create a mockup of the dialog, where you resize some of the sections of the dialog, in order to reduce the minimal height (if possible without making the dialog wider).
