In KDE3, tabs are only as wide as required to contain the name of whatever is running in them, e.g. shell, root shell, or root midnight commander. In KDE4, with only two tabs open, each tab is about 41 characters wide, and yet, the two tabs only use about 2/3 of the available (120 character) window width devoted to tab space. If I open a 3rd tab, the used space is about 75% of the available width. Even with 4 tabs, all the available width is not used, leaving roughly 20% unused. Instead of what happens now, either all the available width should be used; or only enough for each tab as its content requires, with a minimum of 6-8 or 10 characters.
