Hmm, what exactly do you mean by padding? Symbol or Detailed view?
I just have no idea what could be wrong, sorry.

Yup, at least for the Show Panel preference, this is only intermittent
as I plan to append a "Bookmarks" page to the panel, so it becomes just
a side panel, not a 'Browse Network' panel. But well, the code still
wants to be written :).

What's wrong with the Symbols/Detailed options? They are both labelled
as Symbols vs. Detailed in both, the preferences dialog and the View
Maybe I should change the combobox in the preferences dialog into two
radio buttons like in the View menu?

"Connect" is now important as well as "EditBookmarks".
Should anything else be important? I was never sure when to set items
to be important, for me all are *not* but that's just me because I
*know* what the buttons do :).

Regarding the toolbar icon style, when starting without a config,
Gigolo should pick up the GTK default style, it seems to do here.

You could try deleting "toolbar_style" from ~/.config/gigolo/config and
then start it. It should use the default value as found in the GTK
setting "gtk-toolbar-style".
