    Is it me, or is this a glaring bug in OS X? Every time I resize a column in a Finder window, OS X "forgets" how wide I made it. This will happen if I go to different Finder windows, or restart my PowerBook or even the Finder. It is extremely irritating to have to resize columns constantly.

    Again, is it me, or is this a bug? Or is it the way it is supposed to work? And if it is, are there any freeware/shareware "haxies" for it?

    This has always been a bug. As far as I'm aware, there's nothing you can do about it other than hope that Apple one day fixes it. Maybe that day will come when Apple finally decides to do the cocoa rewrite the Finder needs.

    I'm not trying to be a wise guy here but is it really that tough to double-click the little "||" button at the bottom of the column scroll bar to automagically adjust the column size? :p

    Anyway, Everyday I have to access certain preference files in my home > library folder and I would constantly have to readjust the width of my columns. How did I solve the dilema you ask, I just threw that finder window in the dock so I would not have to keep readjusting it everytime! If this is not an option for you I believe for the time being you are SOL. Sorry.
