Column Widths

I think the rightmost column should take it's minimum width as the rest of the horizontal space on the row.  Right now it appears to set itself to the width of the first line it displays, which very often is much shorter than subsequent rows.

In the settings (first tab) you can force a width for the last column. If nothing is set here, the width is computed for the currently visible range of lines after loading the file.

Well, since this is a tail utility, there really isn't an "after loading the file", which means (at least in my experience) the width is set by the first line and never changed.  I went ahead and updated the setting to the default 2000 characters (which should work fine), but I still think the default should be the rest of the available space in the window.
