Re: [Bug 91344] New - Toolbar icon buttons should have minimum width

Hey Michael,

Jorn split those up because i think it was the only way he could get the pull 
down arrows to work correctly. Anyway, see galeon1 for an example for how 
these are supposed to work.

some problems right now include
1. mousing over the arrow doesnt highlight the whole button, only the arrow.
2. right clicking on the button doesnt work anymore.

also pixmap themes sometimes break with bonobo toolbars(im sure you're aware 
of this).

Great to hear you're working on this.
