Looks good: I'm sure there's a reason that 50 is there (I seem to recall
some versions of GTK making that label invisibly tiny by default mean
people don't realise it's even there!).

I'm currently at FOSDEM, and for some reason I can't get to NetSurf's
Subversion from ULB, the host university.  I'll try to investigate this
when I get back to the UK or sooner if I can, and apply your patch to
our repository.

Yes: the reason I originally got involved in the project was to have a
faster browser for my NetBook Pro.
