When executing a long query (long as in string length, not duration) with an error in it causes the Response column of the output tab to become very thin.

Turning on word wrap can be used as a work around but that's an extra click.

How to repeat:
- Open SQL Editor
- Enter a long query in the editor and include a deliberate mistake which will trigger a query error
- Execute the query
- Output tab gains focus with Action column very wide, Response column is squashed.

Suggested fix:
Minimum sizes for columns on output tab and/or automatically turn word wrap on if contents of column will be too long.

Thank you for the bug report. Verified just as described on Windows XP.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.17 changelog:

In the SQL Editor, when a SQL query was entered that contained a large number of characters, it appeared full width in the action column of the Ouput tab, causing the Response column to be unacceptably narrow.
