I'm using Google Chat on my personal email account with the right-hand-side-chat lab feature enabled.
I noticed tonight that, as I typed, the chatbox would grow to three times as large as normal and vary in size as I typed into it. Below is a screencapture. The box on the left is normal, the box on the right has grown as a result of me tapping Alt to get the screencapture.
I'm running the latest Chrome, and I tried restarting my browser. I attempted to repro in IE, but I have IE7 which won't display chat.
Update: checking on my office computer, for which my work email uses Google Enterprise Apps, and this problem isn't persisting there. I also logged into my personal email; on my work computer, this chat-box-text-area-resizing issue isn't cropping up.
Update two: The problem followed me to work! I checked in IE9; this issue isn't reproducing there. However, Chrome continues to demonstrate this issue.
Why is my chat window size bouncing around? How can I get it to stabilize?
