It's the usual "tab overflow" problem of modern browsers. Imagine that you
start something like 10 xterms. The part reserved for each window becomes
minuscule, there should some sort of minimum width = X pixels, after which  
mode changes - maybe into the current task groups.

Everything is up to the developers, as usual :)
