For a toolbar I don't think this really matters.  At any rate it didn't
particularly bother me in the use to which I put it.  But as a GUI
design, tearoff toolbars seem to me to be a poor choice anyway.  I
agree though that for the purposes for which ardour is likely to use
tearoffs, collapsing the space is probably essential.
