Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch freshly installed (default settings) xchat
2. Notice window includes display of timestamps of messages with user names, which reduces the space allocated to comments
3. Navigate to Edit > Preferences > Show Timestamps and uncheck box
4. Note timestamps disappear as you move to different tabs
5. Actual behavior: On all tabs, the separator bar between usernames and comments does not move
     Expected behavior: Separator bar should shift to the left an amount of space equal to what the timestamps had been using.
6. Workaround is to manually go to each tab and drag the bars left a little bit.
7. Re-enable timestamping
8. Notice the separator bar doesn't move in this case either. Timestamps are often overlaid by (longer) user names and not always visible.
