Keep Status As One Line Instead of Expanding

Description

I like to have large status's or away messages, and I know I'm not alone. Whenever I try for a large away message, the annoying nature of the status at the bottom will take up as much as 1/4th of my buddy list or more if I had a longer message. This shouldn't happen. Unless you click on the status for a quick fix, it should always be displayed as a single line.

Also what is the point of the icon on the bottom-right if it has no bearing on your actual icon?

I don't know what you mean by this - I assume you're talking about the global buddy icon, which will set your buddy icon for accounts where it hasn't been overridden at the per-account level.

Alright, that explains that part. What about that box that appears whenever you press any key on the buddy list? It's extremely annoying. Can you explain that one? I am using XP, if that explains anything.

You're talking about the "typeahead find" popup, which will jump you to the appropriate buddy as you type their name (very useful for a big list). Note that there is a GTK+ bug that makes it not work in the current GTK+ version.

The size of the text entry area is bounded at 4 lines of text for me in 2.5.8.
