The scrollbar for the slide transition frame gets wrongly calculated.
I attached three screenshots:
4.1: Shows how it's correctly working
4.2a: Scrollbar is present.
4.2b: Scrollbar is not present anymore, despite the fact that there is more content hidden.
4.2c: Scrollbar missing on Linux.
Occurs on Windows 7 with Font size set to 125%:

I suppose this was introduced with the switch to .ui.

Not sure it's still worth to hunt this bug down.
+ switch to pure sidebar mode in master - but not enabled by default, except in Impress (Caolan)
I see what's going on here. The sidebars request for "what's your preferred size" goes to a pair of hard-coded sizes in getSlideTransitionPanelMinimumHeight and getSlideTransitionPanelMinimumHeight we need to reroute to get_preferred_size (and I wonder if we can get rid of the intermediate DialogListBox widgets or if we need to retain those)
aha, I need the DialogListBox for the non-sidebar case where draw manages scrolling itself, but not for the sidebar case where the sidebar handles the scrolling.
This DialogListBox turns out to appear to be a fuller implementation of where I was going with the partially implemented VclScrolledWindow. So might be able to merge those together and profit.
Caolan McNamara committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Resolves: fdo#69236 route size request to layout widget, not hard-coded value
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
