I think your main problem was the tabs gallore on the right side. It's
probably better to have just one column with information presented
sequentially in it


Yes, since its presenting information and not UI, use a collapsible tree.
Like say, Wireshark's packet information display.

I hate having a center column so narrow it needs a scrollbar just to show the name of most packages.  Thats just simply an unusable UI, even if the right side was collapsible.

Well yes, I don't really like the horizontal three panel thing either. Widescreen isn't *that* wide, and I'm not likely to have every last machine in my arsenal upgraded to widescreen for 5 more years, at best. My point about using a tree instead of tabs still stands. Think in terms of varying verbosity rather than flipping through pages... (This goes for yumex as well...)
