gajim configuration woes

Tonight I finally got enough round tuits to configure my Jabber client Gajim properly. Apart from the base configuration, there are a few options not properly exposed through the configuration interface.

Firstly, every chat window contains a blue bar on top which contains a status logo, the name of the person one's talking to and the avatar of that person. It's huge, blue and in the way. To turn it off, one has to enter the Mozilla-like configuration editor (EditPreferencesAdvancedAdvanced Configuration Editor).

The option to turn off the blue bar is named hide_chat_banner. Also, the option to start all windows in compact mode by default has no ”compact“ at all in its name in case you're considering it: it is named always_hide_chat_buttons.
