The columns on the Status and System variables tab cannot be re-sized, thereby making it difficult to view variable values larger than 3 or 4 characters.

How to repeat:
view any group of status or system variables and try to re-size the values column.  The cursor will change when positioned over the column border, but unable to move the column divider.
