You may set the hidden do_noautoresize pref to 1. Your main window won't
change size unless you tell it to, and longer contacts will get cut.

Horizonatl scroll may not be a good idea since you wouldn't see your other
contacts status ("(Busy)" "(Away)" and so on) without scrolling.

I wonder if do_noautoresize (who named this pref... double negative ;-))
shouldn't be set by default to 1 and a little thing in the code to
truncate and add "..." to longer contact names, though.
