I know, there was on previous bug report about it. Feel free to submit a
patch. In general, Icon and SmallIcon modes have more problems than the
Report and List modes :(

Odd -- you'll need to debug this a little. Remember, the listview can't
gracefully handle more than 30000 or so items in Icon and SmallIcon mode,
so please test with lists smaller than that.

Known -- it's in the TODO. I guess this one can wait, there are other
burning problems to solve first :)

I know -- keyboard handling has been on my TODO list for some time,
but I did not have the time to investigate. Feel free to work on it.

It should. Can you capture a +listview trace of a resizing event?

Hmmm. This is strange, it shouldn't do that. Are the missing names
always the same?

Try the obvious fix, see if that works :)

True. If you have patches, post them to the list, so we can discuss them.

Our treeview is not perfect :) Let's deal with the listview first,
it's enough to keep us busy for a while ;).
