[MlMt] Apple-F doesn't function as expected if message window is open

>>>  This has been bugging me for a while, but as the subject says, using Apple F is normally reserved to help find text matching your input. If you have focus on a Mailmate message window, it collapses that window so that it ends as a narrow window showing the red button to close the window, with no text.
>>>  The only way I have found to return the window to any form of usable state is to use Window/Zoom and resize it. On occasions eve this will just make the narrow window taller in size.
>>>  I cannot find any listing of Apple F in the Mailmate menus, nor in the keybinding files (in 5820), so I cannot work out what is going on, and why.
>>>  Closing Mailmate and reopening it does not make the same mail message return to ‘normal’ size, it retains its new narrow size…
>>>  Any suggestions?
>> It's just a bug: you can resize the window using the mouse but it is annoying as the separate message window size will stay like this until they're resized.

Eric - you are correct, now I look I also see this. But that is clearly not what is happening. Apple F works in all other apps so it appears to be a unique failure to Mailmate.
