True, the width of the columns in the search window are not stored
separately. They are always taken from the original column width,
which is stored for the main window of Gnome Commander.

I'll try to implement this feature in the next releases. Let's see what
I can do.

Yes, this is also true. I don't know why this behavior was actually
implemented like this, but I see pros and cons for having it:



I can think of making this an optional setting where the user can
decide if he wants the search window to be transient / if it can be
minimized or not.

Should be not that complicated...
