There (probably) lies the problem - in Gnus I have a vertical split (left
window *Group* buffer, right window *Summary* buffer), and that right
window is splittet horizontally when I want to read an article with the
lower part showing the *article* buffer. Normally, I do have an w3m
buffer open in another tmux-window, that occupies half the screen (one
pane of a vertical split).  

I don't know if tmux is confused by the intent of fitting a buffer that
has a half-screen pane in one tmux-window into a pane of another
tmux-window thats smaller. This might be the problem, since I can open
w3m in another tmux-window that has the same splitting as the original
one without problems.

On the other hand - I like the Gnus frame with the 3 windows, thats very
