It's a consequence of the hacked up GtkTreeView subclass we're using. 
The nice thing about it is that it constrains all the columns to fit in
the available width, so there's never a horizontal scrollbar.

The behavior you see is a side effect of how it tries to allocate width
for the columns evenly.  I don't think it's going to be easy to fix, if
it's really possible at all.

Nautilus has it a bit easier because it only has one arbitrarily-sized
column (the file name).  Rhythmbox has four: title, genre, artist, and

By the way, if you want to see what Rhythmbox would be like without this
hack, just open up widgets/rb-entry-view.c, search for the line that
	view->priv->treeview = GTK_WIDGET (rb_tree_view_new ());
and change that to:
	view->priv->treeview = GTK_WIDGET (gtk_tree_view_new ());
