Tags table columns resize inappropriately

Reported by: LonelyPixel Owned by: cbro@…

When a new map element is selected, the properties window and the tags table within are updated. But the tags table column widths are automatically changed to the same default value every time, which seems to give the first column as much space as is required for its header (in German: "Schlüssel"), and the rest of the available space to the second column. Most tag names are cut in the table because they don't fit it (like "maxspe..." or "created..."), and even worse, the tag selection dropdown list only shows tag names like "a...s" and "c...y" because that column is way too narrow. I can resize the column as often as I want, it will always revert to the small width. This is annoying, at best, and should be changed to either default to a reasonable width or remember the previous user setting.

PS: My properties window is wide enough so that tag names and values often fit in well enough if the space is distributed 50:50 (both columns equally wide).

It seems to only apply to the German language setting, or at least non-English. When switching to English, the left column takes sufficient space for average tag names, although the column header "Key" is much shorter than in German.

Anyway, I'd prefer to use the programme in my native language because tags and values are easier to assign correctly with their localised names.
