No, its hiding just fine.  I'm familiar with how that is supposed to work
(and it did work as expected up until this recent build).  It behaves just
fine if the size is set to medium.  However, if i change the size to
something smaller (Small, Tiny), then it hides, but floats off of the edge
of the screen, abot 1cm in, so that i see this silver bar sitting in th
emiddle of nowhere.  I'll try & get you a screenshot tomorrow, if this
doesn't make any sense.
