Bug Description

When there is text in the text box it will extend outside of the black area given for the text and eventually go under the filtering options. This occurs for both user entered text as well as the hint text for instance in the Gwibber scope of "Enter name or content you would like to search for". The text should be cut of at roughly the middle of "for".
