Added a workaround for a Wine bug

Trying to use version 3 of Transformer for marking stuff up in ScanCan, I hit a bug whereby the first time the app starts (when the layout XML files are not there, so it's starting from zero), the resize code which ensures that columns in the main TListView are not resized out of existence or out of view does not work properly, because the initial values for column widths are not readable, or not read. Added a get-out clause in that resize routine so it detects that situation and does nothing; that allows the app to start up with columns not too badly set up, and thereafter you can resize normally, and it will save and read back correct column size values. That makes Transformer 3 usable on Wine.

Transformer is an open-source Windows application written in Delphi 2005 by Martin Holmes. Transformer loads Unicode text files and performs sequences of search-and-replace operations on them. It provides you with an interface to create and test these sequences of search-replace operations before running them in batch mode on a set of files.
