#4 Pane overlap in old Gmail user interface persists

Alas, the annoying overlap between the Quick Contacts list pane and the main pane (Inbox, Sent Mail, etc,) in the old Gmail user interface persists in Firefox 3 b 5. It should perhaps be pointed out that this bug affects no small number of users, as all Gmail users who do not have their respective «Gmail display language» set to «English(US)» - and we are not few - see it. Moreover, given the buggy nature of the new interface, which is still experiencing considerable problems despite being released some four months ago (check the Gmail users fora !), it seems likely that the roll-out of the new interface to all users will be delayed for quite some time to come. It would be wonderful if this bug could be crunched before FF 3 is released to the general public !...
