I agree. I think I was using 640x480 in virtual box and then moved it up to 800x600. I still had to hold ALT key and move the window.

As this is quite normal (while not perfect) behaviour - dialogue windows and their elements should always be sized by (at least logical) screen resolution - that won't be changed, I guess.

In the meantime I have seen a hint has been established (was it in the install slide show or in the release notes?) for the "ALT-and-click/draw-somwhere" workaround.
This could be used generally and not only on small monors, so it would be good to propagate that a bit more.
