screenshot of software installer after launch on 5120x1440 display res

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1a. Launch YaST2 (non-textmode)
2a. Open a component, e.g. security settings
1b. Open a component directly, e.g. software installer

Expected Results:  
Component should adjust its window geometry to either of:
a) the last time it was launched
b) inherit the width of its parent
c) a fraction of the total display resolution, but not always 2/3 if the
   display exceeds 'n' pixels in width.

Please have a look at the attached scrot. Warning: 5120x1440

Suggestion a) and b) could be laborious and unnecessary for its use case.
Yes, I could create a window rule. But I'm not keen on messing with kwin on every system I run or install OpenSuSE to.
And maybe there are more users who get annoyed.

Although I flagged this as 'enhancement', it's really bugging me. Pun intended.
Feel free to ask questions.
