Two checkboxes appear at the bottom of the wizard. They are invisible.
Assumption is that user does not need to manually resize most windows or dialogs to see all of the UI objects and
information in them. I'm running in pseudo localized locale in which each message/label is sometimes longer than in
English. To account for that in some locales, translations from English (and some other euro languages) could be shown
with longer strings.
Also I'm running at font size 16, which is viewed as a valid font size that might be used. Resizing issues are not just
related to i18n; they might show to user in English locale if they run at larger font size.
Often, these issues happen because the length of some label or message or size of entire window is hardcoded vs using
layout managers or other techniques or api to have the windows or the objects in them, dynamically resize. Sometimes,
embedding components in a scroll pane will solve the problem.

First panel was split into two.
The fix produced another resize problem.
After the split there are labels and j2ee ver. dropdown with not properly visible text.
