If I understand you correctly, when a user wants to insert a new row they'll
see the odd spacing of the frame, but when they enter a long string for the
description it will adjust the size and expand to the left.

Alternatively, when a use selects a row from the database table the
retrieved data will fill the description entry widget so column 2's width
will be wider.

Is this correct?
