It needs to be quite wide anyway because of the tree - calendar names
and such *are* rather wide, plus it is indented etc.. 

So I guess we could make the minimum size so that the buttons fit - of
course we should use the small sized icons from the icon theme when
resizing the pane smaller - that way we can get 5 buttons of 16 pixels
wide icons + button padding = not *that* much. And if one resizes it
wider it could switch to 24x24 and even 32x32 pixels. Icon theme
contains several sizes.
