So, this will introduce the issues mentioned in bug 511408 to SeaMonkey as well? The header pane may be too small now when varying number of headers are shown in sequence. Expanding to a specific size before showing the scrollbar would be the optimum case IMO...
Yes, this isn't optimal - but it's better than the previous situation; that's why I said "until something better comes along".
Since apparently Thunderbird won't come up with a nice fix in bug 511408 any time soon, I've spun off bug 522278 to find a feasible solution for SeaMonkey. It's good to have the scroll bar now, but it shouldn't show up until max-height is fully utilized.
