'handle_size=0' Results In Very Weird Behavior

Bug Description

Selecting ‘handle_size=0′ results in very weird behavior. When splitting vertically, the new terminal opens 3/4 of the way to the right instead of splitting the terminal in the middle. When splitting horizontally, the new terminal opens 2/3 of the way to the bottom instead of splitting the terminal in the middle.
This bug is related to version 0.90.

This is definitely a functional regression from 0.14, but I'm not yet sure what's causing it.

2. Ubuntu Lucid. python-vte 1:0.23.5-0ubuntu1.1. Terminator 0.93-0ubuntu1. Metacity and Gnome
(Weird. The Terminator version for Lucid is lower than that for Karmic. Both are installed via Launchpad ppa.)

I do not see the described behaviour.

I can confirm this behavior with 0.95 from ppa. Scroll bars must be switched off. If I switch them on (via context menu) split works as expected.

Confirmed still present (or a variation of it) in Version 0.96
With or without scroll bars for me!
Handle size set to 0 or 1 (-1 or 2 or higher does not show issue)
I do a Ctrl-o, then a Ctrl-e
On the Ctrl-e the horizontal splitter from the Ctrl-o jumps up, almost as if redistributing 3 vertically stacked terminals.

I just retested this and it all works without strange effects. I think it must have been fixed by other commits. I think it can be closed, unless the OP can still reproduce.
