Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

In the edit Message Filter I always have to resize the window as some of the auto generatate descriptions are a bit long. This resize is not permanent, next time I try to edit my filters it is back to its original size.

I tried the following dialogs some had resize persistance some didn't and a couple hand no resize handles ( although they probably did not need it). I would have thought there would be some level of consistancy in this.

No Resize Persistance

Folder -> Move Folder To..

Resize Persistance

Yes this is reproducibile

Example of Non Persistant dialogue (Edit -> Message Filter)

Open Evolution
Goto Edit - Message Filters
Resize the Message Filters dialog with your mouse
Click OK or Cancel
Goto Edit - Messge Filters
The message filters dialog is no longer the resized size it is back to the default size.

Example of persistant dialogue (File -> Save Message)

Goto File - Save Message
Resize the Save Message dialog with your mouse
Click Cancel
Goto Edit - Save Message
The save message dialog is now the same size as you resized it previously.

For the sake of consistancy all windows/dialogs should reopen at the size the user left it at
