Hi Jacque,

Thanks for trying. I understood you were not looking at resizing at  
first, but I just thought that one shouldn't claim the drawers bug  
fixed, yet. Maybe in 2.7.5? I must admit it isn't a very big problem  
for me, except in those cases when I want to create a distinct Aqua  

To answer your last question first, left and right drawers always  
behave exactly in the same way and are therefore both resizable. If  
there is no room on the right, the drawer appears on the left. In  
fact, it is exactly the same window.

That brings me to the question whether it is a bug. In my opinion, if  
the same window behaves differently only dependent on its position  
relative to the main window, I call that an inconsistency and thus a
