Thanks. Adding these lines corrected the problem.

Do you mean that if the font size is changed (or the font changes and 
the font carries a different size hint) then the virtually-hardcoded 
size of the checkboxes might mean that the text is cropped? If yes, then 
it should be trivial to add lines to update the min and max heights if 
the font is changed, no?

That's not a problem, is it? Or could it be?
