This is not a Balsa issue, but probably some underlying gtk icon issue.  The icons for adjusting the relative

icon for grabbing the separator is two vertical bars with arrows to the right and left.  If I try to adjust 
the relative size of the mailbox list (left) and the message list and preview pane (right) the icon is two 
horizontal bars and arrows pointing up and down.  I see the same problem in the gentoo file browser 
(application by that name, having nothing to do with the Gentoo distro.)  I've hunted through every gtk3 them 
and icon I can find, and cannot find those icons.  Does anyone know where they come from?  Are they build 
into gtk3?  It's not really imporant, but it's starting to drive me crazy that I can't find where they are 
coming from.

Thanks for any suggestions.

The relevant code in gtkpaned.c may be:

      if (gtk_widget_is_sensitive (widget))
        cursor = gdk_cursor_new_from_name (gtk_widget_get_display (widget),
                                           priv->orientation == GTK_ORIENTATION_HORIZONTAL
                                           ? "col-resize" : "row-resize");
        cursor = NULL;

      gdk_window_set_cursor (priv->handle, cursor);

The doc[1] shows all the available cursors, and "col-resize" and "row-resize" are what you'd expect. It 
states that:

[gdk_cursor_new_from_name] Creates a new cursor by looking up name in the current cursor theme.

so the fault may lie in the "current cursor theme", whatever that is! On my Fedora box, 
/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/cursors/col-resize is a symlink to /usr/share/icons/Adwaita/cursors/sb_h_double_arrow, which "file" 
declares to be an "X11 cursor", and which is indeed a double-ended horizontal arrow. You could try looking for some file with 
col[-_]resize in its name--that's the best I can suggest!
