Editing manual IP fields brings up textboxes with the wrong size/position

Bug Description

This is on a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit live session.

In the Network Connections dialog, Add/Edit a connection. In the IPv4 Settings (or IPv6 Settings) tabs, set the method to Manual, and Add a new address.

A text box for Address comes up, approximately spanning the first two columns (Address and Netmask).

Pressing Tab (with or without a valid address) brings up a text box starting in the middle of the Address column and ending in the middle of the Gateway column.

Pressing Tab again brings up a text box in spanning the final two columns (Netmask and Gateway).

(When a field is no longer edited, it appears in the right place.)

Strangely, once a complete, valid entry is made (e.g. / 24 /, the next Gateway text box seems to subsequently be put in the right place (spanning only the Gateway column).

In each case I would expect the text box to exactly fill the specific column it is for.
