Clipped toolbar item

LibO 3.5 has the new "more-toolbar-items" button - that's great, but... 

1. Open Writer (use default toolbar settings, make sure that the window is wide enough - all of the toolbar items should be visible).

2. Click "View -> Toolbars -> Drawing" and draw something. The "Formatting" toolbar should be replaced with the "Drawing Object Properties" one when the drawing object is active.

3. Click on the free place of the doc - a cursor will blink again and the "Drawing Object Properties" toolbar will give the "Formatting" toolbar a seat.

Problem: last item of the "Formatting" toolbar becomes invisible and the ">>" button appears although there is enough space. See the attached screenshot.

OS: Ubuntu 10.10. Can't test on other systems.

Assigned to Kendy according to git-log :-)

Stupid patch

Also I've tried to fix this - see attached patch... It's so stupid (that's all what I can do), but it works!
After reading it: 6 is the minimum number that helps.

[Reproducible] with various Themes and icon sizes and parallel installation of MinGW Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) English UI [(Build ID:  2ba5d12-e8c71c5-41e7bcd-4b83b90)] (daily/MinGW_cross-compilation2011-10-25_00.12.09)" 

Works fine with "LibreOffice 3.4.4RC1  - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:401)]"

Screenshot demonstrating the hidden items bug.

  This bug is present in LibreOffice-3.5.0beta2

Steps to reproduce in my case:
1. Open Writer
2. Right-click on the toolbar and change the visibility of some buttons (turn on or off -- it doesn't matter).
3. See that the last item is not shown even though there is plenty of free space on the toolbar.
4. If I switch to another Desktop (I'm using Xfce currently) and back, everything becomes fine with this toolbar.

Just want to add that I see the same behaviour on 3.5 final and would like to see it fixed.

We need exact and correct target information for automated lists in Wiki and LibO Web Site.
