Tab grouping bug

I found a tiny bug in SecureCRT that causes the tabs to group tightly together when I open multiple sessions in tabs.
This image shows that when I open scrt its already reduced, this seems to be part of what triggers it.. if I have it so that its maxmized when it opens, it doesn't seem to occur.
This image shows that I maximize it before opening any sessions..
and here is a screenshot of it happening after I have opened 6 connections..

Also just so you know my tab settings that I changed.. I have my minimum tab width set to 75px and "Only show tabs when there is more than one" checked. I changed the 75px setting after the first time this happened, I thought that maybe the setting was too low and that was what caused it.. it wasn't till I reduced and maximize the screen till it fixed it and aftewards I realized it was a bug and not the min width setting causing it..

Hope this helps!

Take care,

Can you tell me what version of SecureCRT you are running?

Are you selecting all six sessions at once and connecting to them, or are you connecting to them one at a time?

In the Global Options dialog, under "Terminal", is the option called "Save window state for each session" checked?

I'm running beta3 of both SecureCRT and SecureFX

I'm connecting to each session, 1 at a time. Honestly, I didnt know I could do multiple like that :)

No that option isn't checked.

Take care,

I wanted to follow up on this real quick and let you know that the minimized part isn't true, Its happed even when its maximized on start.. I honestly dont know what's triggering the glitch.. but I do know that when I reduce and then maximize when its doing it, it fixed it and then I can even open more connections without a problem..
