In the IDL 5.3 WIDGET_DROPLIST documentation under the 
XSIZE keyword:

    "The desired width of the droplist widget area, in units 
    specified by the UNITS keyword (pixels are the default)... 
    This keyword does not control the size of the droplist button 
    or of the dropped list. Instead, it controls the size "around" 
    the droplist button and, as such, is not particularly useful."
It's not what we wanted to hear, but it is there :-)
