The zoom slider, free space bar, and progress bar in the status bar have a fixed size since

This causes problems when the user tries to make the window more narrow, see bug 319373.

On the one hand, one could argue that the widgets need a certain size to be useful, but on the other hand, I think that we should not annoy the user if he/she really wants to have a narrow window.

The problem that translated space information might need more horizontal space and is thus not shown fully is still open (bug 318395). I'm not sure if this one can be fixed cleanly in Dolphin alone, or if some adjustments in KCapacityBar are required. It seems that the mimimumSizeHint of this class isn't even sufficient to show the text.
Works for me.
