oh, I didn't know you can make that area scrollable; in that case,
that's the way to go of course.

I would not like to merge those two tabs, as seperating the settings
you always need from those you rarely want to change is very important
in my opinion (the current dialog has way too much stuff in it, and it
is not as easy to find the basic options as it should be).
