Excellent, thank you!

Some other things I've spotted:

When you select a group and open it, the "Welcome to pan" tab (I'd rephrase
the app name to Pan) is not closed automatically. I suggest replacing the
welcome tab with the tab of a group that is being opened.

I'd rephrase the text label to something like "Welcome to Pan. To start
newsreading, select a group or add a news server." Just nitpicking here,
anyway. :)

As with Firefox and other popular apps with tabs, I'd like to be able to
configure switching to a newly opened tab automatically. And perhaps make
the automatic switching default.

I'd be nice to have the display of the whole tab bar configurable as well.

The changing of the currently selected group based on the active tab still
doesn't work for me when moving between tabs, unfortunately. 

Also, the close buttons on tabs are still huge, maybe this is related to
GTK+ themes or so, and not to Pan code directly? I can surely live with
that, just saying.

Thanks again,
Petr Kovar
