Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 updated to date. Using Gwibber to view and use Twitter account, then the display within the gwibber window is displaced to the right in most window width sizes, part of the content cannot be seen. In a special case of windows width size, if the gwibber window is only just wide enough for the content, then th econtent can be seen ok. If the window width is increased then the content moves to the right by a greater amount and the end of each line is lost.
Attached images.
Note that when changes of window width are made than there is often a long delay (40 seconds etc) before the window contents are re positioned in the window.

If you change the select stream (clicking on the icons in the tabbar at the top) does it "fix" itself?

I can only reproduce this if i maximize the un-maximize and resize, but it gets corrected when i select a stream. Which is tricky to fix, but we need to do it.

In my case it doesn't fix itself, so I'm stuck in this wrong width mode.
Is there any workaround to reset it to the default values?
