In the redesigned symbology gui when a "marker line" symbol layer is selected (for a polyline layer), or an "outline: marker line" symbol layer is selected (for a polygon layer), then there is a horizontal separator above the options for marker rotation.

This separator seems completely out of place.

There are no separators for any of the other types of symbol layer. Note that the "simple line" symbol layer instead has a gap (depending on the height of the dialogue) above the less significant "join style" and "cap style" options.

There are no other separators in the entire layer properties dialogue. Logically there are other places where a separator would make a lot more sense. e.g. underneath the "symbol layer type" selector.

Can this be closed? I can't see this horizontal spacer in current master...

Yeah, maybe it is fixed. Are you on Windows? I don't have a Windows machine to check there anymore. There is no visible separator on Linux. There is a gap beneath "symbol layer type" which isn't there when "simple line" is selected, but maybe that is because of the widget that is used to group the marker placement options...
