Bug Description

When I open the Edit Custom Messages window, it is centered on the buddy list and just as wide as the default buddy list. This narrow window width leaves the custom status message text entry only twenty characters wide. I recommend that the Edit Custom Messages window be made 420px wide by default to allow a wider text entry for entering a custom status message.
