As far as my memory goes back it has always been a list view. This has
not changed in recent versions at all. (In fact I can see in our
source history it goes back at least to version 0.43 in 2010)

You can resize the dialog to see more entries and the calendar widget.

Unfortunately not something I can easily fix. Setting dialog sizes is
only a hint, the window manager and theming decide how things show up.

Yes, that is bug #1095694 in the tracker. Blame non-standard compliant
strftime implementation in python. Working on a fix.
