SideBar min-width not respected, app.js overstepping css

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

In a new vault with no snippets, attempt to adjust the left sidebar to a value less than 150px. User will not be able to.
Disable the ribbon, and the sidebar will be 200px. User will not be able to adjust smaller than 200px. When the mouse Is moved to 50px from edge of screen, the sidebar collapses to zero.
app.js is clearly designed to make this behavior happen, as seen here:

Expected result

The user should expect to be able to modify this behavior using a css snippet that changes min-width of the sidebar.

Actual result

CSS min-width is not respected. This has little effect:

.workspace-split.mod-left-split, .workspace-split.mod-right-split {
    min-width: 100px !important;

It simply adds a bump in the animation of collapsing the sidebar.

Additional information

A gif of the sidebar failing to resize even with snippet. It is slowed down so you can see the resize stop momentarily at 100px when the mouse is 50px from the edge. Even if the user unclicks, the size reverts to 0px after a moment.

While there is already discussion of this in the Custom CSS & Theme Design section of the forum, and there is even a plugin that provides keyboard-only work around, this deserves a bug report because app.js should not determine min-width of an element, .css should

I don’t consider this a bug, as this is the intended behavior right now. I am gonna merge you post in that thread. Thanks!
