Size of dialog to select listing mode [(Left|Right) -> Listing mode] is
hardcoded to 45 characters (or actually more if translated strings are

However, with this default width, "User defined" string is often not shown
entirely and you have to scroll to see it.

I have created and attached patch, that will widen the dialog by up to 15
characters, if size of the screen allows it (dialog never grows wider than
width of console).

Maybe similar modification could be done also to other dialogs? (not sure
which of them can benefit from being wider if possible)
