i posted about this issue in the first .97 release. i was just wondering about how this ever turned out. hidden docked bars tabs still bunch up like so.
it doesnt seem to have been fixed or be just a problem with my computer as i have it installed on multiple computers all with the same problem.
Try going to preferences and changing the theme to VS2005 or 2008.
The first 3(XP, Native XP and office 2003) all had the same bunching of the side bar. The others seem to work fine...
