It's a GTK issue (I can't find the bug number at the second). There are
some corner cases where GTK doesn't handle column-resizing well, and
Rhythmbox runs into most of them.

Having a number of columns, with fixed-width and resizable columns
interspersed, makes it hard to figure out how exactly resizing should
work. From what I've heard, most ideas that improve one situation make
other situations worse.

Unless someone fixes it in GTK, the only other option is to make the
columns no longer fit the window, and to have a horizontal scroll bar.
