I haven't tested it but the idea seems good.  But this won't completely solve 
the problem I 
think - someday it will show up again in some language.  So it should still be 
fixed at the GUI 
level (by avoiding resizes that make the widget smaller).

Another alternative is to remove the veteran-level text entirely.  This info is 
already shown in 
the unit graphic on the panel and on the mapview.

Perhaps a long-term alternative is to have the user choose the text.  A string 
is included in 
the clinet options with tags like %v for veteran level.
