Are you not able to resize it at all horizontally, or just smaller than
a certain width? If it's the latter, I've noticed this since at least
1.0. I just assumed they used a gtk variable to keep it from being
downsized past a certain size. It seems to closely correlate to the
width of usernames on my buddy list + their buddy icons + the protocol
icon (aim, jabber, etc.).
Unfortunately I don't know a way to work around it, though there are
times I would like it smaller (I have two gaim buddy lists open on my
desktop at all times... for a combined total of at least 4 usernames).
HTH & HAND,
