[Gtk-sharp-list] Combo box drop down width

Hi David,

Thanks for your reply. The reason I wanted to avoid going for a solution
like limiting the number of characters is because the combos resize as
you resize the application window. I was hoping for a nice solution that
would allow the drop down to take as much space as there was available
but no more.

Is it not possible to limit the width of the drop down list to the width
of the combo box?
