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
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
