Critical installer dialog boxes not resizable

Bug Description

Some critical dialog boxes are not resizable.

Most importantly, the dialog box which allows you to view the diff when a package tries to install an updated version of a modified config file.

The example I had last only showed me two or three lines of a huge diff at a time.. certainly insufficient to review the changes properly.

Also annoyingly, the install dialog is not resizable, even when the terminal window showing the update is expanded.

This poor dialog usability through lack of resizing reminds me far too strongly of Windows.

  * DistUpgrade.ui: allow the conf file dialog to be resizable and set it to a
    larger initial size. Thanks to Michael Terry for the fix. (LP: #1065806)
  * check to see if --tags is available before trying to
    use it (LP: #1070043)
