Google Talk user-interface annoyance

Several times a day, I get irritated by following issues in Google Talk user-interface:-

  • Moving mouse over contact list brings up the contact-info popup. Which is quite irritating and leads to another annoyance mentioned in next point.
  • While accessing the scrollbar, very often, I have to go through contact-list area and that brings up the contact-info popup, which stops me accessing scrollbar. I have to click somewhere else or move mouse out to get rid of popup. I believe, there should be good amount of gap between contact list and scrollbar.

Yahoo! messenger doesn’t have these issues. I get to see contact-info only when mouse is over buddy-icon, which is on left-side. One fix, it solved two issues.
