You can resize the gnome-appearance-properties dialog, but the tabbed notebook doesn't expand vertically. I'll attach a screenshot shortly.

Could be this caused because of the recent changes to the appearance capplet?

not an upstream task, this is not reproducible with gnome-control-center without the ubuntu patches.

The package in question is capplets-data. The bug was introduced starting in capplets-data 1:2.20.0-0ubuntu3.

If you have cache of capplets-data packages you can verify this.

$ cp /var/cache/apt/archives/capplets-data_1%3a2.20.0-0ubunt* .
$ sudo dpkg -i ...-ubuntu1
$ sudo dpkg -i ...-ubuntu2

This should fix the issue.
