2 Users have reported that when the player is in miniPlayer mode, the playlist resizing is broken. Sometimes it will disappear all together, or instantly go full screen.

I can replicate the problem with resizing of the miniplayer in 1508:

1 Run MediaMonkey and click 'change to miniplayer'
2 Try to resize the Now Playing window by dragging via the _upper-right corner_
--> NP Window resizes by itself--it's impossible to control
--> NP Window disappears
3 Maximize MediaMonkey (via the miniplayer), and then 'change to miniplayer'
--> Miniplayer appears _with_ the NP window, but it's much larger than it should be

At this point it's sometimes possible to resize the window so that it's usable, but it seems that with each subsequent attempt to resize the window, the operation becomes more and more erratic. The only way to 'reset' the erratic behavior is to repeat step 3 above, and then it is again _initially_ possible to resize the window.
