MakeClothes error pop-up too small (OS X)

MakeClothes error pop-up messages appear to be too small on OS X.
This is with Blender 2.77a and MakeHuman 1.1 (although I think 1.0 is affected too).
To fix this issue on my machine:
In the directory /Applications/MakeHuman/1.1/Blender/Plugins/makeclothes I opened error.py in a text editor.
In class ErrorOperator I changed
width = 20+5*maxlen
height = 20+5*len(theErrorLines)
width = 400+5*maxlen
height = 400+5*len(theErrorLines)
I saved the file, re-ran the "Install Blender Plugins.command" and re-launched Blender:

I wonder whether this is a general error in all Mac OS environments or whether it is screen resolution dependent? In other words, is changing 20 to 400 a universal fix or a local fix?
I wonder what screen resolution Frogt has? For this specific issue perhaps Francois has insight into the generality of the solution because I believe he said he has a quad HD screen. This becomes even more complicated in cross-platform environments where default fonts can vary as well as screen resolutions.
Going forward issues like this (and right panel width-estimation in MH itself) are begging robust general solutions.

I'm using a macbook pro 15" with a retina display. The native resolution is: 2880x1800 pixels, and the scaled resolutions available are 1920x1200, 1680x1050, 1280x800 and 1024x640 pixels.
I was using the 1680x1050 (default) scaled resolution when I implemented the fix, but as an experiment I've tried switching to the highest resolution 2880x1800 and the amount of information in the error pop-up is still the same (i.e. the switch from 20 to 400 still works).
This issue could be related to retina/non retina screen technologies - unfortunately I don't have a non-retina device to test with.
