Screens load up full width and do not adjust then Kdenlive 0.8 crashes

Kdenlive 0.8 has stopped working correctly. If I turn items on like Project screen, Clip screen, Transition they load full width and any attempt to resize fails, unless I can get them to the lower half of the screen where they resize but dont open correctly causing Kdenlive to be unusable. Not so much a bug as an epedemic!!!

I.m using Kdenlive 0.8 on Ubuntu 10.04.
