column view width won't stay put

    I'm sure everyone has experienced this problem. It's not a killer, but
    it sure is annoying:

    In OS X (I'm on Panther), column view by default is not quite wide
    enough to accommodate three columns. So I stretch the window a little
    bit, but the next time I make a finder window, it is back to where it

    I'd heard that if you set it the way you want it, log out, then log back
    in, it would stick, but this doesn't seem to work for me. It's been six
    weeks I've been running Panther, and I have yet to find a way to make
    this stick for good.

    Any ideas?

    On Panther you can resize the columns. This does stick. There is a bug
    (been around since 10.0) where after restarting the very first new
    finder window is wrong, but just dismiss it and open a new one and all
    is well. m.

    Well, that's what I thought, but it seems like the old too narrow view
    keeps reappearing. Maybe I was imagining it. It works fine now...
