[mythtv-users] blue abstact theme

I've been happily using blue abstract for some time now, displayed on
an HDTV. When I upgraded to myth 0.24 I downloaded the current version
at the time (1.4). I noticed that some of the fonts were too big for
my tastes (for example, in the recordings screen the start time would
be clear but the end time would be replaced by '....'). The FAQ
helpfully suggests I use a different theme. As I like blue abstract
more than any of the others I'm trying to change the font sizes in the
theme so that they display properly. Mostly this has been as simple as
changing one font size in base.xml. However there's one screen which
I've not been able to find where the font size is set. When I try to
delete a recording the confirmation dialog asks e.g.

"Are you sure you want
to delete:

I'd really like it to show the whole name, either by reducing the font
or widening the window. Can anyone point me in the right direction for
this? (and I realise that what I end up with may look worse than what
I have now, but I can always revert it in that case).

On a related note, is the list of pre-assigned names for the ui
documented anywhere?

Finallly, version 1.5 of this theme is available on the website, but
the latest visible through mythfront end is 1.4. Is that a problem
with the theme server or with my configuration?

Thanks for any help.
