Package: evolution
Version: 3.26.0-1
Severity: normal

Evolution has recently started to fail to restore the message pane sizes
each time it starts up. Whether in Classic or Vertical view it opens
with an approximate 2:1 split between the message list pane and message
preview, ie the former is twice as big as the latter, so the message
preview is too small.

Strangely, when I tried 3.22.6-1/stable and 3.24.5-3/testing they both
had the same problem (although 3.22 seemed to use a 1:1 split) even
though I only started to experience it since a dist-upgrade (unstable)
yesterday.  So I think some sort of interaction with another component
has caused this, which is why I'm reporting it here instead of upstream.

With dconf-editor open I can see the
/org/gnome/evolution/mail/paned-size or hpaned-size values changing when
I move the border between the panes, but they seem to change the
opposite way I would expect, because the schema descriptions say they're
the size of the message-list pane, but they get smaller if I increase
the size of the message list (reducing the size of the message preview).

The default value for paned-size's schema is 144, but when I load
Evolution in Classic View it gets set to 192. In Vertical View
hpaned-size gets set to 357, its default is 450.

FWIW I'm using GNOME on Wayland with a hidpi display of 2560x1440.
