[GNC] Invoice date field starts too narrow

I don't use any of the business features/invoices either but this is the
default behaviour in normal account register windows on Win 10 as well.  I
get around it by manually widening all date columns to allow for the drop
down arrow when the date is highlighted.  If I double click the header to
autosize it the days are dropped off and instead of seeing 15/12/2019
(dd/mm/ccyy) and the drop down arrow I get /12/2019. I thought there'd been
a bug/enhancement report raised a couple of years back to fix this
behaviour but I could be wrong.

Cheers Dave H.
