you do know the dialog is resizable?
you do know you can use "remember" to remember your last size/location...

the dialog is small by default so people stuck in 640x480 on vga screens can
at least USE the UI - unlike other desktops environment (gnome, kde, windows
xp) where some dialogs - especially ones for doing things like changing screen
resolution - do not fit in 640x480. you can't click "ok" to change resolution
in windows xp for example.

these are bad design errors. thus by default we try keep our dialogs within
640x480. you are always free to resize the dialog to make it bigger. you can
ask e to remember this for you :)
