Description of problem:
Install from classical 64 bit DVD dated 13/8, update sources at the end and elect to install available newer packages.
If there are less than 10 packages, presumably, buttons are shown at the bottom. If there are dozens, the list is broken up and the buttons appear at the end. But if (in my case) there are 14 packages, the buttons are invisible (below the edge of the screen).
One can press [ enter ] to proceed, but the buttons should actually be visible.
Screenshot follows (F2 screenshot from installer actually showed the next step, not this step).

screenshot showing buttons are missing
Humm, strange as:
- the size is not really big
- we ask for center position...
Valid for 6sta2 (classical 64 bit iso dated 05 DEC 2016)
Valid for M6 rc (classical 64 bit iso dated 23 Mar 2017)
There is no keyword for M6rc

Not sure how confusing this can be, but is certainly something that cannot be fixed after release, so setting to release blocker for now.
The answer is simple: the focus is on the "ok" button or similar, so pressing
[ Enter ] works, except a first time user does not know that. So obviously it ought to be fixed ;)
We could try RPMProgressDialog->new() to call set_position('center_always') instead of 'center'

I don't know if it's exposed to our bindings, but there seems to be a `WindowPosition.CENTER_ON_PARENT` flag too.
Could we try one of those on the next set of ISOs?

ie something like this
But that would not please gurpmi users after install.
Though there should not be much, people are using rpmdrake.
