I've uploaded a short video (no sound; wmv file - I could embed an mp4 in
an html file if it would be preferable) showing the behaviour.

When I click on Zoom Height, the status bar is hidden.  Clicking on Restore
Height (which I attempted to do twice in that video) does absolutely
nothing. I expected it to toggle i.e. switch back to the height it had when
I started Idle (so that I could easily see the status bar).

At the beginning of the video, I show my screen resolution and related
parameters as perhaps this might be relevant.
