​Currently in the BOM editor​ (also called "Edit Symbol Fields" or "Symbol
Table"), when you first open it, the columns are auto-sized.  With multiple
references, this means that initially the reference column takes up the
whole window.

I realized that I had just fallen into the habit of unchecking and
immediately checking the "Show" checkbox for all my columns so that I could
see them.  This resets the column width to 150 (hard-coded), which seems
sensible on my monitor.

The attached patch moves the column width at the outset to the default
value, preventing massive strings from taking over the column.  It also
abstracts the default width to a getter method with the intention of having
the variable be configurable come v6.

If someone with a hi-dpi monitor could check whether the hard coded value
is wonky for them, I'd greatly appreciate it!
