Documents don't occupy all available space

first of all, thank you for the new release and the great AvalonDock! I really like it.

But one thing is annoying me:
If you drag a document from the main document pane to a new document pane, then close all other documents in the main document pane, the open document only occupies half of the space, rather then all the vailable space.
Practically the same thing is when you only have one document open and drag it to create a new document pane (see the screenshots to reproduce it).

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

Is there a quick fix around this? Or is this by design?

Thanks in advance,

Yes, it's by design but I was seriously considering to remove it.
There is not a short way to fix this kind of problems: one should consider an arrangement layout process every time a document content/pane is closed.
Thanks for the feedback,

May I ask where the arrangement is stored?  In the dock manager?
