Description

Hi,
I'm using the dwm tilling window manager. If I resize the smuxi window via the shortcut keys or by moving it around or by inserting or removing other (tiled) windows, the pane showing the list of nicks seems to get resized a bit randomly, sometimes becoming much narrower sometimes wider. I noticed that if I put it in floating mode and resize fluidly using the mouse, then it seems to always keep its width.

I'm currently on version 1.0. I'm not sure, but I don't seem to recall this behaviour on older versions which were packaged in ubuntu.

Can you make a short screencast of this behavior? I think this commit maybe fixes this behavior: https://github.com/meebey/smuxi/commit/48294b217477dce937714db859be1945da4cc1f8

Since you are on Ubuntu, you should be using the smuxi-stable repo from here:
https://launchpad.net/~meebey/+archive/ubuntu/smuxi-stable

That stable repo includes the potential fix which I have linked above.

Yes, I'm using this ppa, and the behaviour is still there.

I've attached images of a sequence when I bring in a new window and then switch the windows.
