[PP]Mac only, Slow to resize 3-pane window on older systems
Build 1999090708M11: Mac 8.5.1 Overview: Launch Mail and try to resize the 3-pane window larger or smaller and it doesn't resize. Steps to reproduce: 1. Use an older Mac such as my PPC 8600/300 with 64 MB RAM or Esther's PPC 8500/250 96 MB RAM. 2. Launch Mail 3. Try to resize the 3-pane window larger or smaller Actual Results: The 3-pane window does not resize. Expected Results: I would have expected the window to be responsive and to resize. Workaround: Hold the mouse button down, resize the window and keep the mouse button pressed until the 3-pane window responds. This may take up to 3 seconds. Additional Information: 1. The 3-pane window resizes easily on my NT4 and Linux system 2. On the Mac I can easily resize the Navigator window, Compose window and the Address Book window so it's only the 3-pane which exhibits the problem. 3. Peter's G3 system experiences a similar problem but it isn't as apparent since it's a faster system.

Currently the splitter does the very smallest amount of work it can. It only redraws itself when you drag it. GFX needs to get faster and there are a lot of people working on it. So I'm going going to move this way out.

This appears to be a bug in one of the tables. Turns out one of the tables uses a 1 pixel image for its background. This is sucking down major CPU.
Sounds like a layout bug to me. Is there already a bug filed against layout on this issue? If not shall we send this to layout?
I'm pretty sure there is already a bug on layout involving 1 pixel gifs. I know I'm cc'ed on it. Lemme see if I can dig up the number.

This has been fixed by a layout checkin. It was also fixed by a change to the web page we were displaying. Marking fixed.
Build 1999110108M11: Mac 8.5.1 Verified Fixed. It's very easy and quick to resize the 3-pane window. Great!
