Simple issue but can't seem to get it right:
I would like to have the tabs on the panel always appear the same size regardless of how many open windows there are and I'm quite happy to have them grouped when there are too many to fit on the panel.
What happens at the moment is that when there is just one tab it will invariably sprawl across half the width of the monitor and when more tabs are added, they'll gradually shrink until they group. Then of course the single tab that groups 7-odd windows again takes up most of the panel.
I have repeatedly specified minimum and maximum values in Window List preferences - to no avail. Those tabs seem to have a life of their own.
Am I overlooking something terribly obvious or do those tabs have a reputation for being unruly?
It's Gnome 2.18.3 on 184.108.40.206-21.fc7
