I think it's better not to show the traceback all of the time because I
think there's a small percentage of users who will encounter it and be
able to do something useful with it (basically anaconda devs + QA, I
think. Those who could use debug to any sort of useful end is even
smaller - just you folks.)

I know there are dialog boxes in GNOME that do this same behavior and
don't have the same issues with resizing. For example, there are
PolicyKit and PackageKit auth windows that have a similar disclosure
pane at the bottom. Would it be helpful if I talked to those devs and
asked where the source code for those dialogs are so you could see how
they do it?
