[Task Mode] Task preview pane corrupts Mail mode window layout

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a task and set some properties to fill the preview pane,
   e.g. set a title containing a few words, set a start and due date,
   set a custom recurrence rule with a until date, ...
2. Check task preview pane
3. Switch to Mail Mode, check layout

Actual Results:
The task preview pane width exceeds the screen width because the information is showed side by side without wrapping. Parts of the preview pane are therefore not visible.

In Mail Mode the Message Pane has the same width as the task preview pane in Task Mode and can't be narrowed. Parts of the Message Pane are off screen and not visible. Today Pane is not visible.

(Tested with screen resolution 1024x768)

Stefan, in which TB view are you seeing this? I don't see anything similar in classic or wide view. But I think that I see something that sound like your issue in vertical view.
Attached image screenshot
I only tested with the Thunderbird default view (classic view). This screenshot shows one example where the task preview pane forces the message pane to a certain width. The effect gets worse if you increase the task title or change the recurrence rule so that the recurrence description gets longer.
Ok, I'm now seeing this in classic view as well. It's just that it is much more noticeable in vertical view.

Checked in nightly build 2008021919 -> task is fixed and verified.
The preview pane still exceeds the screen width and therefore some information can't be read completely. But the Mail Mode is no longer affected.
