A label will requisition at least the size of the text inside it, so
unless you're using something like GtkFixed it will be allocated the
whole requisition.

If you want to limit the size of the text displayed, you have two
options.  First, you can use a combination of GtkTable and GtkAlignment
to get the exact layout percentage you want.

Or alternatively you can use the ellipsizing label widget that's
floating around.  I have a copy in the Rhythmbox source that I've fixed
a few bugs in, so you'll probably want to grab that.
