ui/ncurses: Use a fixed-sized for small, known-length fields
Fields without O_STATIC can "scroll" horizontally, and we may miss a left-hand section of text from the current display. This can mean that the user can't leave a validated field with no indication why, if the off-to-the-left data is not a valid entry. This change adds a widgetset function to mark a field as fixed-size, so we don't have this scrolling behaviour. This means that the entire field contents will always be visible, and any validation errors can be seen. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Kerr <>
