Hey, another tmux+st user!

Could you be more precise please, maybe provide me with a screenshot or
something like that, because I can't really understand what problem you tried
to describe there. In the current setup I can split windows horizontally as
well as vertically without error.

Myself I'm still not done on a similar tmux related problem, because tmux
assumes the terminal it's running on understands utf8 / graphical characters
and non-standard glyphs, which means until I recently added a quick fix [1] for
it I didn't see any pane limits, which meant erroneous display with any of
mutt, htop, finch, pane splits (irssi+nicklist), ncmpc. Well, I know I could
have this easier by adding more complete utf8 support, but I was too lazy to
look into the documentation / existing utf8 handling.

If your problem is in fact related and st fails at horizontal padding, please
try the patch and see if it helps.
