evolution in RHEL 6 Beta (view when NOT maximized)

Description of problem:

When evolution is NOT maximized it is not possible to resize the widht of the account view on the left side of the application. It only stays at the minimum (possibly hardcoded) widht.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
actually this bug occurs in RHEL 5.5 with evolution 2.12 as well as in RHEL 6 Beta with evolution 2.28

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL 5.5 or 6 Beta with evolution
2. use evolution together with an IMAP account
3. do NOT maximize evolution and try to change the widht of the account view
Actual results:
nothing to change

Expected results:
widht should be resizable up the the half of the complete widht of the application

Additional info:

screenshot show actual situation to explain this a little (sorry but the language is only german)

Thanks for a bug report. The width is not hard-coded, but the top items above message list are preventing resize of the folder tree, those "Anzeigen [combo] Suchen [entry] in [combo]". They cannot wrap, due to bonobo usage, if I recall correctly.

There is nothing much we can do with it. The newer Evolution (2.31) has something called "express mode", which makes it more usable with smaller screen resolutions.
