Gtk2. It happens with other controls too.

Previosly we thought to remove TPairSplitter. TPairSplitter uses 2 
panels + splitter on other than gtk/gtk2 platforms. Therefore it adds 2 
unneeded window handles. This makes your form more heavy - it needs more 
os resources, positioning and resizing requires more operations.

I would use TSplitter only.
