The logo is centered vertically on purpose.

The real problem here is that the window doesn't resize back to it's initial size when collapsing the 'Optional Packages'-field. See the attached screenshots:

I am aware of that, but why is it a problem? I think it's ok, after all, there is less visual noise if the window doesn't snap back. And the user may have resized it himself, in which case the window shouldn't snap back. But I would be ok with reopening the bug, too, if more people think it's not elegant enough.

I think this behavior is really strange and I would expect it to snap back as it was before I clicked 'Show Optional Packages'.

Please do consider it. :)
Just like the GetInfo panel retracts when re-hiding the permissions, so should Installer. If you concern is a user-resized window, you should just remember the size before expanding and go back to those.

Also, resizing while the OptionalPackage view is expanded, should resize that view and the additional-needed-diskspace string along with the lower window border. Also, there are visual glitches of the dropdown-menus when resizing horizontally.
Should I open a new ticket for all this? It's taken an off-topic turn...
