50 makes the dialog seem too wide IMO. The user can stretch the dialog
as well as scroll the entry. I don't like forcing the entry to be at
least 50 characters wide, I wouldn't mind so much if it displays as 50
so long as the screen can take it, but could be reduced by GTK or
the user if necessary.
