I have this same issue. It is maddening.

Same issue, there's a scroll bar in front of the Links panel options rendering them unclickable. The scroll bar does nothing, because there's nothing to scroll.
Similar problem, the link information pane doesn't show up all the time, regardless of if I click "show information pane" and I can't get a handle to drag it up because I didnt drag it down in the first place. Not sure how to work around this but please fix.
