GtkHPaned — A container with two panes arranged horizontally

so they are getting the "d" at the end from "horizontally paned".
HorizontalPaned scrapes against my English grammar bone.

It's in the same league as the HTTP header HTTP_REFERER, which
got into the standard in spite of the typo (should be referrer).
