Right panel shrinks each launch until it disappears

The right panel seems to shrink down each time the program is launched. If you don't manually pull it back towards the left to increase its size, it can shrink enough to no longer be on the screen with no way to bring it back without deleting the configuration files and having them regenerate.
It only seems to happen if you maximize the window to fill the whole screen rather than using the standard resolution it opens as.

Version 1.7.2
Happening on both Windows 11 and Ubuntu 20.04
How to reproduce: Open the software, maximize the window, then close. After a couple/few times the right panel no longer exists.

Re: Right panel shrinks each launch until it disappears

I checked 1.7.2 (branch Test from Gitlab) on Ubuntu 20.04 and could not reproduce the bug. GCstar stays maximized when stopped and restarted and the limit between the list panel (left) and the item panel (right) doesn't move  (tested on 2 types of collection).

Could you try to launch GCstar with warnings (perl -w gcstar) to see if there are some cues on what's going on?

Re: Right panel shrinks each launch until it disappears

I could reproduce the bug by maximizing GCstar before leaving. It should be corrected by the latest commits on Gitlab. Could you test that?

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
