I can coerce the behavior from guname. It doesn't occur when I open the
window, but if I drag the separator between "Category" and "Your System"
just a bit to the right, it behaves as you describe. 

I've got gnome-utils-1.0.50, gnome-libs-1.0.50, gtk+-1.2.5 compiled from

I think the resize warnings might be a red herring. A patch floated
across gtk-devel-list the other day that addressed the problem causing
those warnings. I've applied it but can still get the resizing problem.

Anyhow, I don't have the time (or knowledge, but I try not to let that
stop me) to pursue this, especially since it doesn't happen for me unless I
force it. 

It looks like the magic location is the point where the clist's
horizontal scroll bar should appear. You might try moving the separator
a bit to the left or right to see if the window stops resizing.

Hope this helps.
