Resizing of the "preview/folder" panes is impossible after main window is
resized and the "statusbar" is made unvaailable (thorugh resizing).

After clicking a resize pane in another "normal" situation the resize "state"
and "cursor" ain't changed if you single click and don't let the mouse "click
back". After leaving that area with the cursor and upon returning to it the
"resize" state is still active altough you are not capable of resizing until you
do a full click with the mouse.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mail and newsgroups
2. Size window to "previous size"
3. Minimize window (from bottom or right/left bottom) till the statusbar is
rendered invisible.
4. Resizing the message "panes" should now be impossible

In your steps what is "previous size"
In your steps when you say miminize are you using the miminize button on the top
of the title bar or are you rezizing by grabbing the corner and dragging the
window to a smaller size?
Please update your steps so we can try to reproduce this.

Start position was "full screen"
Resize with "Restore Down" button (next to the "minimize" and "close" buttons).
After that resizing the window itself by grabbing the "bottom right" corner and
resize it in a way that the statusbar is invisible.
After that the vertical panel remains resizable but the horizontal panel can't
be moved. This problem only occurs if the statusbas is invisible.
After using the ""minimaze" bar on the panel the statusbar apperas and thus it
functions normally.
So the statusbar must remain visible at all times.

Bart Leusink, is this bug still an issue for you?  Note that being able to 
resize the window to make the status bar disappear is itself bug 41994.  But 
even following the steps you provide in comment 2, I cannot duplicate the 
symptom of being unable to resize the vertical splitter, in 1.3 Final or 1.4RC1.

I don't seem to be able to reproduce it anymore.
Which will probably mean that it was fixed one way or another.
It think it is safe to close this one.
