Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Evolution Preferences Window Is Too High For Screen and Cannot Be Re-sized.
The screen size was 1366x768.

As the bottom of the preferences screen was not visible, and the window had no scroll bars, it was not possible to get to items at the bottom of the screen. I could not seem to re-size the preferences windows, or move the preferences window off the top of the screen to get at the hidden part at the bottom.

I would expect the preference window to fit the screen, be re-sizable, or have scroll bars.

I will attach a screenshot of this.
