I was hoping that Lubos' suggestion would work out.
Otherwise I'm afraid we fall back to the "Qt needs width-for-height in the 
windowmanager spec for us to do something else than wildly guess"...

Looking at the code I removed, I see no reason why it would be 1/4th size, I'm 
guessing that this was a happy usecase for apaku more then it was designed to 
be like that :)

I'm not sure what the best way forward is, we went round the set of solutions 
already in the above linked thread.  I just know that the current solution 
needs work...

Does anyone want to put some time into a better solution?
If not, are there objections to the removal of the scrollarea code so the 
common usecase works again and only for the uncommon (very very very long 
filename) things start to become problematic.
