Steps to reproduce:

Installed the new 68.2 x64, looking forward to starting afresh.

Renamed old profile (both Roaming and Local), and let TB create a fresh new profile.

Started customizing the toolbars

Actual results:

I removed the WhiteSpace from the Menu Toolbar, then added the Hamburger menu top it on the right side.

The button got 'lost' (I could still barely see it), but I couldn't get to it.

Had to 'Restore Default Set' to recover

Expected results:

Either the Min/Max/Close buttons should be considered unusable space, or they should be considered actual buttons that take up space on the toolbar, so no other button can get lost behind them.

Please attach a (small) screenshot.

No screenshot needed. I know whats the problem.

Thanks Richard., was just getting ready to create a new profile really quick to provide the screenshot...

The titlebar-placeholder was hidden on too many OS versions. It should only hide on Windows 7 Aero where the menu bar is placed below the tabs.

Great ;-) - I don't so what am I reviewing here?

OK, looks like when you draw the tabs into the titlebar and then customise the menu, the area covers the maximise/mimimise buttons.

Correct. It's already visible that the white rectangle (the flex spacer) goes behind the caption buttons. With patch no more.
