Description Harald Koester 2015-01-28 12:02:24 UTC
Steps in order to reproduce the bug:

[1] Open a sidebar panel on the right side of a LO window.
[2] In order to resize the panel grab the left edge of the panel with the mouse. The mouse pointer changes its icon.
[3] Increase the panel size by moving the mouse pointer to the left. The size of the panel is increased up to a specific maximum size. 
[4] After reaching the maximum size move the mouse pointer a bit more to the left.
[5] Move the mouse pointer back to the right. The panel is already decreased even if the mouse pointer does not reach the edge of the panel. Expected: Decrease of panel not before the mouse pointer reaches the edge of the panel.

This behaviour appears also if you move the mouse pointer to the right beyond the LibreOffice window edge and then move back the mouse pointer.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

I think that if you have reached the maximum width then it should not be possible to move the mouse more left to avoid this result that the mouse icon is no longer attached to the sidebar edge.

Could not reproduce.
This could really use a screen-captured video to explain better.

Thank you very much for the vid. I guess the problem for my reproduction ability is that I don't have an interactive update of the sidebar width! I just see the "ghost" of the edge moving.

I tried to find some option to enable interactive resizing of UI elements, but no luck.
