Right, it /doesn't/ make sense. :-) Actually it seems when this happens 
the Qt window is somehow larger than the X window, since other things 
disappear off the right edge as well. Of course, I am still not sure how 
the sidebar got to be so large in the first place...

Um, does that look right?! :-)

I've *NO* idea how it got that way, but changing it to a more reasonable 
value makes things sane again. Thanks for the quick answer!

Congratulations! You've won a free trip to the future! All you have to
