There seems to be a problem with the contig editor in
Staden. If you try to increase the width of the window
it initially expands and you can correctly see more of
the alignment. However as soon as you release the
mouse the window is resized back to its original width.
This behaviour is the same in both Win32 and CTU64 (run
remotely through Exceed).
I realise that the height of the contig editor is
deliberately controlled, but this needn't apply to the
width. The current behaviour means that you can't use
the full width of a large screen to do your contig editing.
