[patch] account for font size in iconview spacing

I tend to use rather large fonts on my desktop, which has never worked out all 
that well -- even less so since the recent changes to the iconview grid for 

The main problem is that if you're using a large font (I use Arial Black 14 
pt) you can't get more than 5 or 6 characters before wrapping kicks in.

I finally got annoyed with this enough to hack something into libkonq's 
iconview to account for the font.  This just uses the string "0000000000" as 
a reference and makes sure that you have at least enough space to fit that.

Anyone object to me committing this (after the temporary freeze)?
