That's a panel issue and not really a status-dock issue

There is a little bit of gravity implemented, and I don't think it would be
too hard to make it work right in this case too.  If the applet is all the
way on the right.  It should just stick on the right side all the time when
changing size.  Same with any applets that are stuck to it.  So, there is
some code to do that, but obviously it's not working :)
