I still don't see this change :(

That's unfortunate resizing done by firefox. No such resizing done in
chromium for example

I think it's likely because different fonts are being used for different scripts, at least in Firefox.

Specifying height and line-height of 25px and vertical-align:
middle for select elements solves the problem.
I don't really like this change, as it would maybe adjust the size for
western-script ones, but for those who cause the resize it will be
It has been mentioned on the german list already

The big problem is that other fonts have a different baseline, thus
when you used fixed height, the text in the other checkboxes is pushed
halfway out of the box.

Can't repro. I just cycled through all the language – some names were shown a bit offset to the buttom, but they all fitted inside the borders well. I wouldn't call that broken. Furthermore, if this is indeed broken, the obvious fix is to increase the height and line-height to some bigger value (e.g. 30px). The drop-downs would look bigger, but still remain of the same size and aligned well.

The different baselines of the fonts is also what makes a middle
alignment as you mentioned impossible.

They make baseline alignment impossible, which is why I suggested middle.

5) I don't quite like the fact that the font in the drop-downs is bolded.
But maybe it's just me.
Why don't you like it?

It's highly subjective, but to me it just looks a bit rough...
