all these values seem rather specific.

They are all hardcoded, aren't they?

What about putting some of them on the gimprc file, even if there is 
no UI to get to it? So we could study some different values for them, 
maybe getting to more pleasant defaults.
The last comment on the  bug says:

"Closing as FIXED since we can't do much about that: if the user
insists on having tool options in the toolbox, she either
has to make it wider or live with that scrollbar."

This should not be blamed on the user since it is the default setting 
on the GIMP. I guess people could use the program through months, 
even years, without realising that the tool options could be 
dettached from there.
