patch to log window to improve resizing

First let me say I think TortoiseSVN is great and I really appreciate all
the work you folks do.

There has been one little thing though that did bug me a little and
motivated me to check out a dev tree and see if I could remedy it. I found
that the log window is pretty resistant to being resized. This is because
when the window is resized vertically the part that stretches is the middle
pane (the log message textedit). This seems counterintuitive, since (at
least in my usage) that textarea usually doesn't need to be very big, and
it's useful to have more size (and resizability) in the top and bottom panes
(the log list and changed file list).

Someone else posted about this to the mailing list (

The attached patch changes things so when the window is resized, the top and
bottom panes absorb the change equally. Also, the behaviour of the top
slider is changed so it moves the log message textarea (and resizes the
bottom pane, the changed file list).

I'm content to keep this change locally and run my modified code (building
whenever there's an update). But I thought I should share the patch in case
you folks also find this behaviour to be an improvement.
