No, changing the focus with the mouse is not enough to "fix" the display
in the left window. It seems to need a focus(prev|next)() or something
calling arrange() (e.g. view(), togglemode()).

BTW, I checked both clients x/y/w/h values, and they don't change after
the focusnext() call, i.e. the window width seems to be fine from the
beginning. However, in the prae situation, the red "close tab" button
is missing; furthermore, when the right window is untagged, text in
the left window doesn't change at all; thus it indeed seems as if the
window took up the whole space.

And: this is definitely not a firefox problem; I see the same problem
with other apps, too.
