Not sure what you are saying here... What status is there to deserve?

Anyway, I meant a configuration setting for disabling this feature, not
synchronising the actual setting. And the synchronisation of the frame
widths occurs via a cookie, not via the pma configuration...

But yeah, I see how you could label it a nuissance and I have no problem
getting rid of the feature for synchronising widths across frames and
reverting to the old, somewhat flawed, logic for handling the frame
