** Description changed:

  The config file conflict dialog in update-manager will be only one line high. 
This essentially just shows the start of the diff making it hard for people to

  [Test Case]

  Original Description
  This is similar to bug 1623856 regarding the download progress window
  only being one line high but the dialog affected is actually the one
  that says:
          title = _("Replace your changes in '%s' with a later version of "
                    "the configuration file?") % from_path
          msg = _("If you don't know why the file is there already, it is "
                  "usually safe to replace it.")
  I've observed this on Ubuntu 17.04 but suspect it also affects Ubuntu
  16.10 as the other bug does.
