  Lol :)
  It wasn't meant as a direct drop-in replacement for Rene's patch. KIO probably sets more on the headerview that isn't applied now (i assume). And if it doesn't then some things do need to be set to make it look nice.  It's merely meant to demonstrate that you can change the width of a column to whatever you desire while keeping the resizable feature and without the need to catch events and do magic there.
  Anyhow, you basically want a "stretchFirstColumn" while keeping. I named it "stretchColumn" but as it is now it only works if one column uses it. You need more complex layouting to get that to work if you want to stretch over multiple columns. But that's not the case here.
  Here it is. [1: header], [2: source], and a example on how to use it [3]. This obviously is far from done, but again only to demonstrate. If you like this approach i can put some time in it to make it less sensitive to errors.
  **be aware** to call "stretchColumn" after you show the dialog! Otherwise the sizes haven't been calculated yet. If you do exec, you can get around it by doing a QTimer::singleShot.
