I agree.
I feel the same with the Kopete configure dialog, which sometimes auto-resize.

In a bast world, KControl should start with a size to be able to embed the 
bigger module. Unfortunately, this is impossible, because it will be a 
difficult Job to calculate the size of all modules.

One could already start KControl with a size proportional to the desktop 
That doesn't fix the problem on small screen, but should be at least working 
with bigger resolutions.
