Bug Description

On resizing the Gwibber window, it always results in the layout being 'rolled over' if the window is made wider. In cases of width being lesser than original, a white margin appears. Attaching a screenshot of both cases.
Using Gwibber bundled with Ubuntu 11.10. Fresh Install. Had to install Ubuntu thrice due to some issues. Gwibber showed the same symptoms in all three cases.

I have fixed this issue in my app by triggering resize when window resizes, not on widget allocation signal (which happens after drawing). Also, please, update GSettings after resizing, due to high IO in gnome shell or unity 2d.
