Bug Description

I opened up the Document Metadata tab and two of the input boxes are so small you can't see the text being entered. Modifying the height of the tab doesn't resize these boxes (see attached image)

Inkscape version: 1:0.48+devel+11044+30~oneiric1 (Inkscape PPA install on 4th March 2012)

Multi-line text boxes in Document Metadata should be about 2 lines in height now.

Here's the diff between r11050 and 11049 in lp:inkscape.
I downloaded the patch and attached it. Not sure if you want to apply for a Feature Freeze exception or what, so I didn't link lp:inkscape or anything, because then you'd have a new upstream release.
