Well, this is on real-hardware, but the biggest factor here is that I
have dozens of snapshots / datasets on the box, and the more you have,
the longer it takes to get "zfs list -t snapshot" to respond, over 5-10
seconds in some cases :)

Its the latest QT 4.8.4 from our PKG repo. I don't mind if it doesn't
resize automatically, since I have some VERY long datasets / ZFS
snapshot names. However if you can enable the "grip" between the columns
so I can manually resize it would work just fine.
