Re: Widget width in vertical base

Hi David, it all sounds good, but in practice, fails
to work.  At least on my platform.

Here is a sample program (just a slightly modified
version of an example program showing how resize events
on a tlb with a menubar give the wrong size - well, give
the size including the menubar (I don't think it's wrong))

Anyway, in this program, when you make the window smaller,
all looks OK, when you make the window larger, the horizontal
size of the scroll bar never exceeds its initial value.
If you get the geometry (using widget_info) it will tell
you that the slider is the correct size.  In fact, if you leave
out all size stuff on the slider, widget_info will tell
you that the slider has resized itself to be the same size as the
draw widget - but visually, that's not the case - it only ever
gets as large as it's initial setting.

NOTE: after playing with it, I think I may have just
found a workaround, and that is to initially set the
size of the slider to a very large value (larger than
the width of the screen) and then, before realizing the
widgets, use widget_control, to set the width of the slider
to its desired value.  Afterwards, setting the size to
anything smaller than the initial (very large) value works
