Bug Description

This bug has been present and reproduced since version 1.1.3 of totem all the
way to the latest 1.2.0.

Pressing and toggling the "Side Panel" button OR shortcut key (F9) repeatedly
causes the totem main window to change size drastically in the horizontal
direction. This is very unpleasant to the eye and the behavior is not expected.

Expected behavior: The panel should either be added as an "extra" space to the
right side of the already existing totem window, OR it should take up an area of
the already existing totem window. The current implementation however can't make
up it's mind and either does the former, or the latter, and sometimes a little
bit of both!

I would recommend rating this higher on the cosmetic bugs because the panel is
advertised as one the new totems main features and it's not working correctly
