Is there a way to increase the margin between abbreviation and explanation in the acronym glossary?

I've got some long abbreviations that are bigger than the standard margin and mess up the layout. (Like "XML-RPC", for example.)

I only found \setlength{\nomlabelwidth}{.20\hsize}, but that belongs sadly to nomencl. Is there something similar for acronym?

Page 3 of the package documentation:

For example, if HBCI is the longest acronym used, the list should start with \begin{acronym}[HBCI]

You used the environment acronym which has an optional argument:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{showframe}
\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}
\usepackage[printonlyused,withpage]{acronym}
\begin{document}
\acresetall
\section{Intro}
as \acs{CDMA} \qquad\acf{CDMA}

\acs{test} \qquad\acf{test}

\section{Acronyms}
\begin{acronym}[Text with the largest label]
 \acro{CDMA}{Code Division Multiple Access}
 \acro{test}{Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text 
             Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text Text }
\end{acronym}
\end{document}
