pop-up-menus who display current selection don't seem to be doing a good
job of showing the selected-item.

Here is a patch that will show the selected item in full.  Be warned that
it does override the dialog-item-size, if needed.

BTW;  It seems that quite regularly when messing with text in dialog-items
one has to use (or (view-font view) (view-font (view-window view)))...

Suggestion:  define the view-font method for a dialog-item to do this...
[probably should check that view-window is a view first, of course]
