Yeah, you're right. I'm not sure I will keep that feature though, just
trying some things to improve usability. It's a bit of a hack though, so
I'm not entirely happy with it. Some things also look strange (date-time
in vertical mode, I had to add a space at the end just to make it look
normal again).

So, please complain if it still isn't fixed by the time we start talking
about a 4.2 release ;-)
