Confirmed on my netbook; of course Alt+drag can be used to work around it.

Looks like only a couple pages in the preferences actually use the full height, so perhaps shuffling some widgets around or adding sub-pages or something could allow it to be reduced in height.

Changed in xchat (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium
