Bug Description

This is similar to bug 1623856 regarding the download progress window only being one line high but the dialog affected is actually the one that says:

        title = _("Replace your changes in '%s' with a later version of "
                  "the configuration file?") % from_path
        msg = _("If you don't know why the file is there already, it is "
                "usually safe to replace it.")

I've observed this on Ubuntu 17.04 but suspect it also affects Ubuntu 16.10 as the other bug does.

Perhaps this should have been fixed in the following class:

class _DetailsExpanderMessageDialog(_ExpandableDialog):
    Common base class for Apt*Dialog
