When choosing to Restore a backup, and selecting a New Schema, there is a prompt for the schema name. At my current font, resolution and screen size, the prompt in that dialogue box is obscured by the input field.
Originally happened in 1.1.8, downloaded 1.2.4rc to see if it was an error that had already been addressed. 
I have not found any other dialogue boxes that are affected in the same way.
Screen capture of the affected box included on files.

How to repeat:
Screen Resolution 1800x1440, RADEON X800 graphics card, using 120 DPI fonts. System font for dialogue boxes, Tahoma 8pt.
Restore Schema, Target Schema, New Schema..., Dialogue box with the shortened prompt. 

Suggested fix:
Not sure of the cause of the problem. I would probably add a newline after the prompt to ensure that the full prompt is displayed.
