Good idea. Done.

Please remember that I'm no english native speaker, so label strings may be somewhat funny ;-)) Fixed.

Hmmm, how should the tree view react on kb events? Moving with the arrow keys always emits changed. I get row-activated when double-clicking a row, but not from the kb. And is there a kb sequence which should pop up the context menu?

I think the confusion coming from the notebook is actually removed by hiding the tabs if there is only one part. However, the icon list is still used for the sendmsg-window (attachments). I read a message (found using google, but can't remember where) that someone works on a replacement for GnomeIconList, so for now...

Cheers, Albrecht.
