If you drop an audio file (using drag and drop from the audio file manager or konqueror) onto the segment canvas, and the resulting segment overruns the end of the canvas, the canvas doesn't grow (as you'd expect it to given the new behaviour when recording or drawing segments).

Thinking about it, this is probably also the case when you insert an audio file using the option in the audio file manager, as well as when you drag and drop it -- but d&d is the case I happened to notice it with.

    The specific case in this report is fixed in SVN (rev 7711).

    However, I think I probably fixed the wrong thing. I made a fix that was particular to dropping audio files, but I think the problem is more about what to do when the size or time of any generic segment changes. For example, if you select a segment and do something like rescale it (using a menu option -- not using any sort of mouse drag on the canvas) so that it goes off the end of the composition, the composition is not resized as you would probably expect it to be. A general fix for this would probably be a better thing.

    Thought I'd mention that this caught my eye, and I tried it with Thorn. I draged some gigantic farking audio segment onto the canvas, and it did expand suitably. Then I created a segment one bar long filled with quarter notes, set the composition to be one bar in length, and doubled the duration twice. Indeed, the canvas did not expand.

    I'm not changing the priority, but I thought I'd mention my experience.
