I noticed that the sidebar does not reduce the window size to accommodate the
screen width to make the sidebar visible like the older releases.  This causes
the user to manually resize the window in order to view his sidebar and its
contents and then resize it back to fill the full screen, which the older iMac
screens are no that big in the first place and need Navigator to look full
screen in order to reduce the amount of horizontal scrolling required.

Ever confirmed: true
The HIG specifically says: "If the user makes a window so big that there's no
room on either side, the drawer opens off the screen."
(http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macosx/Essentials/AquaHIGuidelines/AHIGWindows/Drawers.html)

The Aqua windows positioning rule is that when a new window is created, the app
should make sure that the window doesn't go under the Dock etc., but if the user
moves and resizes the window, then the app should not touch the position and
size even if the user does something that leads to a situation that would not be
recommended as a default (eg. resizes the Dock to cover part of a window or
opens a drawer that doesn't fit on screen).
