Bad-package-catalog dialog is too large

Bug Description

software-center 4.1.14, Ubuntu 11.10 beta
Ubuntu Software Center 5.0, Ubuntu 11.10 beta

1. sudo apt-get install 4g8 && sudo dpkg --force-depends -r libnet1
2. Launch Ubuntu Software Center.

(When finished testing, reset if necessary with "sudo apt-get remove 4g8 libnet1".)

I've attached a screenshot. Looks like a side effect of the new gtk3 height-for-width logic. I'd suggest maybe using a GtkGrid, which generally handles layouts better.

It may save time to fix bug 844014 at the same time as this bug.

I thought this dialog was no longer necessary. In any case, see also bug 635101 about improving its text.

We have a bunch of GtkTables left in the UI files in data/ui/gtk3/dialogs.ui that will need converting.
