Eclipse CVS show history tags column stretched out

Gosh, I managed to double click on the show history tags column one time viewing a file that has gazillion tags. That stretched the tags column out of its capacity. There seems to be no way at least in UI to get that back to normal size so I can see the columns to the right of the tags column. I searched around and finally found a way to fix that without having to create a new workspace.

\Workspaces\ProjectName\.metadata\.plugins\ cvs.ui\

open dialog_settings.xml

search for


there is a tag in this section called “COL_TAGS.” That is the size of the tags column in the history view.
