Thanks, I will look later to see how this is done.  Although I don't 
believe in anything that "fixes" something, especially not on Java/Swing. 
Whatever is done, it will break something else.

Doing some web search myself some months ago, I've found the WrapLayout of
http://tips4java.wordpress.com/2008/11/06/wrap-layout/ but that is already 
quite old.

A quite different approach is to make the Find and Sledgehammer panels 
more like the regular Find dialog in jEdit, with its way of doing the 
layout in a more rigid manner.
