Details:

Continuing the small-screens saga...

When the option "Arrange widgets for small displays" is selected but "Merge
the message notebook and the map notebook" isn't, causing the Messages to
move to the right of the map rather than below it, the Messages tab tends to
be taller and narrower, so having buttons going down the right hand side
wastes space and reduces the width available for messages. See "before"
screenshot.

Attached patch adds yet another special case to the GUI code to catch this.
See "after" screenshot.

Experimentally on my system, this allows the window to be about 260 pixels
narrower before scrollbars appear in this configuration than before (about
820x567 with the patch).

I've checked all combinations of these two options and also "Split bottom
notebook area", and I haven't seen this make any of them worse.
