The natural size of the window list is the ungrouped size. 

There definitely are cases, like a terminal widget (gridded size), where
a widget can only handle certain sizes, and is going to have to leave
blank space at other sizes. And in fact, even a wrapped label fits that
category. But while keeping things simple, understandable, and
compatible with GTK+ as it exists now, trying to handle those cases is
not feasible.

(Would you really want, say, the notification area applet to get bigger
and smaller as the task list grouped and ungrouped windows?)
