Come on ......

Evolution, the size of your preferences window is shameful. I'm using the C locale with a resolution of 1280x800 and the preferences dialog cannot fit completely on my screen. This is a known bug at lower resolutions as well. It appears that the "Mail Preferences" selection in the left frame is the culprit. The "General tab in particular since none of the others occupy the whole window. Please fix this!

I successfully defended my Masters thesis Monday afternoon and my submitted manuscript was approved yesterday. This means that aside from my math final next Friday I'm a free man. I've been using my newly found free time to triage and fix some bugs in seahorse and upload state borders into OpenStreetMap. So far I've uploaded borders for SC, NC, FL, GA, TN, KY, AL and MS. I'm hoping to work my way across the country in the next couple of days.

I have some seahorse features I've decided to work on the next couple of weeks. They are in no particular order: adding passwords to gnome-keyring in the key manager, ACL lists for saved secrets in the properties of saved secrets, and possibly some evolution integration.
