The modal form gets a scroll bar if the content needs more space. In my case this is a unwanted behavior.
I agree. The current setup for the size of the modal box is very limited, and I've run in to problems because of it. The only options seem to be to change the settings in modal_forms.module, not good, or override the inline style in your theme css:
height: 315px !important;
Also, not really ideal.
This issue seems to be more or less a duplicate of one that I started here.
While not an uber solution, I've created a patch that provides a UI for altering the sizes of the modal popups that come with this module.
I'd be grateful if you guys could test out the patch so we can get it committed...
