Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

steps to reproduce:

1. if you already have a configured evolution, create a new user to reproduce the initial settings dialog.
2. log in with the new user and start evolution
3. the now opening configuration dialog is too big, so that the "next" button on the bottom is not visible. One only can access it by hitting "Tab" blind.
Trying to maximize that window is also no working solution, as the window then jumps on click so that each click goes to the void.

This is especially bad, as evolution is ubuntus default e-mail application. configuring it is one of the first steps for a new user, it would be good, if frustration would be avoided then.

(this happened at least with german language settings)
