Ok fixed, but make disappear the sidebar requiers 3 shortcuts :-(
Perhaps each component should disappear if not used (no queue if no
songs were added to it, and no cover widget, if no cover found); and
in that case one keybinding could be used to hide the whole sidebar ?
There is problem when I remains only the cover widget [2]. not really
beautiful. :(
Onother thing is the cover picture is not resized smoothly when I
resize the sidebar; furthermore it has a strange behaviour on the main
RB window.

Each user has it's point of view I think. I prefer text, specialy for
such small pictures.

I don't understand why if the queue is in the source list, that will
change the behaviour and the visibility from the user point. In that
case, it simplify the UI and make the queue viewable in the same time
as the souce list.

Thank you.

Globally, I just want you to understand I don't reject features, but I
like to see them better integrated. :)
