The Context View does not remember its size right now across restarts of Amarok. Amarok should restore the size of the CV and other components after a restart.

Saves panel widths for persistance on restart
Saves the widths of the three panels on exit, and restores them on restart of Amarok.
Uses the sizeHint() member function of each panel to set the size. Should prevent problems if the main window is a different size when Amarok is restarted.

SVN commit 874449 by markey:
Make Amarok remember its panel sizes over restarts.
Patch by Gary Steinert <email@example.com>. I've cleaned up the patch a bit before committing.
M +19 -5 MainWindow.cpp
M +8 -10 MainWindow.h
M +9 -1 Sidebar.h
M +6 -1 playlist/PlaylistWidget.cpp

The patch does not work as expected. If one collapses the pane, i.e. clicks on it if it is opened and restarts amarok, the pane is restored with its minimum size rather than collapsed.

Partly fixes collapsed frame problem
This partly fixes the collapsed frame problem. If the entire frame is collapsed (in the case of the sidebar, this includes the buttons), when amarok restarts, it will remain collapsed.
If, however, the sidebar is collapsed with the buttons visible, the minimum size will still be restored. I'm working on that now.
Also, there is functionality in the patch for Mark's idea of a reset to defaults button. I'll work on that for 2.1.

Gary what are your plans for this for 2.0 rc/final?
Now that I've actually remembered about this one, I've just come across some code that should allow me to get this sorted.
Expect a fix soon =)
Not going to happen for 2.0, retargetting.
I've looked into every way I can think of to get the collection browser panel to collapse properly. I just don't seem to be able to find the right way.
All that is left to be fixed of this bug is to restore the left hand panel correctly when it has been collapsed (i.e. one of the tab buttons clicked twice to hide the contents of the panel). Unfortunately it is a little over my head =(
This is still valid with current trunk and the new CV.

Works fine here now.
Please re-open, this is not fixed as of Revision 973477. See comment 5 for the remaining issue.
