Any app showing text could cause problems. For instance, if there is
text with e.g. japanese characters or something else with taller glyphs
somewhere in the list these would be cut off.

Enabling this by default will make us look ugly and buggy every time
this happens, and I think small lists are much more common than huge
ones, so the default performance really isn't that important.
