[Bug 509866] Re: [lucid] empathy window resizes while typing in IRC

To clarify:

I expected the input box to wrap-around and either grow vertically, or have a scrollbar, yes.
The window should not resize because it is being typed into.
i.e. the input box grows horizontally to fit the typed text in, but in doing this forces the whole window itself to grow, which is wrong.

If this is not reproducible, may be a metacity or X issue, so will
apport-collect this in.

Will report this upstream as well.

** Description changed:

  As stated in the title.
  To reproduce:
  * Join an IRC channel (may be the same for MSN/Yahoo, etc)
  * Type a long message (longer than the window)
  The input box does not open vertically as you would expect, but resizes
  the entire chat window.
