Bug Description

I open bzr explorer (window maximized), select a branch from the recently opened projects.
When the project is opened the working tree widget (qbrowse) is squashed in the bottom right hand corner.
The result is that everytime i open this view i need to drag it to a size that i can actually view more of its contents.

Recommended behaviour:
The working tree widget should take up as much vertical space as possible. Currently it seems that the toolbox takes up all the vertical space.

I agree.

BTW, you can eliminate some of the tabs in the toolbox by disabling some Clothes in the Accessories dialog, e.g. Register on Launchpad. That might help a little in the short term.

I have to drag re-size this window to the left each time to view longer file names.
Storing the last horizontal size is important for usability.

This issues is actually aggravated by the exceptionally narrow active region for dragging the window divider. When using my laptop and its low res touchpad I must often work for several minutes to find the very narrow hotspot where the cursor changes to the drag icon so that I can pull to the left and get enough of the file path visible so that I can see what file it is (in our deep source tree hierarchy). The issue is less of a problem on my workstation with its high res mouse, but its still a productivity drag. New users may be initially unaware that the window regions can be re-sized. Thanks, Jeff
