Nick has the same problem, we talked about this in

Your patch works for me. I personally would not mind the minimal size
increase. I completely agree it's better than an empty popup :).

What bothers me more is that for some reason this problem doesn't occur
with the cross-compiled nightly binaries.
This is what we noticed in the above mentioned thread already, I just
re-tested it to get sure.
Though I have not yet an idea what could cause the different behaviour
by the different builds :(.

Stop this, please. Windows XP is unrelated in this case because this
also happens on Windows 7 which is supported.
