image with old and proposed situation
As per subject.
I've been trying hard with Glade.
Best I could get is visible in attached image.
What do people think?
Good news first, it's not worse than before.
The input fields are unusual small now and the button is hanging around (perhaps anchor it to the right). But without any good suggestion I vote +0.25 for your patch.
(Issue with current situation is that these separators never grow to 20 characters to make that large input fields necessary. It just looks ridiculous.)

I'll push a patch, so that you/others can test.

Even more: there is code that restricts it to one position, prevent wrong characters and undesired combinations :)
