As far as I see, you would have to comment the following lines of the
answer dialog script

"put max(the formattedWidth of field 1 + foffset + 16, bwidth) into
  if twidth > 600 then
    put 600 into twidth
    set the dontWrap of field 1 to false
  end if"

and add a line that sets a fixed width for the prompt field.

But that would make the answer dialog unusable for normal use.

The best thing for you would be to write your own modal dialog for the
error messages.
