On occasions when I want the Styles and Navigator visible concurrently (that is, if the Style 
sidebar's own alternative Navigator function does not suffice), I leave Styles on the right sidebar 
and put the Navigator on the left sidebar. When both panels are on the right, any changes in the 
Styles control bar (say, from Styles to/from Page or Design or Properties), seems to cause shifting 
in the panel width and position (width never returns to a prior setting). IOW, I think the culprit 
is the Styles (F11) panel, not the Navigator (F5) panel.

Where do you like to leave the Navigator panel? Floating?

I like to have the Styles panel open full height on the right of the screen and use the little 
arrow to collapse when not wanted. I activate the navigator by using the F5 key and I like it 
docked full height next to the Styles sidebar. If I click to retract the Styles sidebar, the 
Navigator may or may not stay full height on the right. It sometimes retracts with the Styles 
sidebar and then when pulled out again, it has placed itself inside the Styles sidebar, limiting my 
view of the styles.

It sounds like our preferences are pretty similar: I used to keep both panels on the right until 
realizing that they don't dock well together. So it sounds like we're talking about the same 
unstable behavior ... though I never saw this:

Just occasionally the Navigator 'decides' to sit full width across the bottom of the screen.

That said, the bottom line is:
Not a mega problem, though.

Yes. There are more functional issues to worry about.
