KMessageBox Fixed size

I have seen that there has been some discussion/problems with overly wide 
KMessageBoxes, but the current state is not really good :(

The attached screenshot illustrates the problem. The dialog is so small that 
the text needs scrollbars and since the size of the dialog is fixed, you 
can't re-size it to read the whole message at once.

Would it be possible to have the dialog this small when it pops up, but let 
the user re-size the dialog manually.

(Fixed size dialogs is one of the most annoying things can think of in GUIs)
