Followup for Bug 405127 Comment #9:

If you move the splitter below the task list to the top the edit field shrinks to a few pixel height. I see no way to restore the correct height therefore the edit field can't be used anymore. 

There probably should be a min-height set to the edit field and the task list, similar to the unifinder.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start Thunderbird with clean profile and install Lightning.
2. Switch to Task Mode
3. Drag the splitter between the task list and the description field several times to the top and back

I don't know if this is the way to go. While I was able to temporarily reproduce this, it only happened after a minute of moving the splitter up and down.

Your patch makes the quickadd field be taller than a textbox usually is. Is this intended? I don't think it should be this way.

r- for now, since I don't think the solution is ideal and it was very hard for me to reproduce. Sorry for the late review though.

On my WinXP the patch achieves the following:

- the task list can no longer be minimized to a height of less than four lines
- the quick-add field no longer shrinks and keeps it height at all times
