Because the flexibility is not in a stretchable page header but in the number
of visible page headers. Maxim decided for the second one and won't do
anything else.

Well, I don't see a problem here. If someone wants to know what means "that
funny icon there", he does the same procedure as for toolbars - resting the
mouse on the control and see what the tooltip shows. After that he will be
satisfied until the Alzheimer hits him again (,if the tooltip doesn't show
e.g. "CV" ;-).
I implemented that because of several wishes of people (also at the forum).
But I agree that we add an entry in "Options/Look-and-feel" called "Show/Hide
tab page text titles" in a way that "Show" is default, OK? I mean a global
show or hide because it doesn't make sense to switch it on or off for every
single dockwidget.

A typical student :) My opinion was reading a lecture script from scratch and
on one ride in 1 week is more rational than everything. Usually, lecturers
ain't good teachers, are they?
