On Ubuntu 9.04/JRE 1.5_0_18 the workflow canvas does not repack automatically when the main window is resized. For example, maximizing the window leaves grey space to the right of the canvas. Resizing by dragging the edges or corners of the main window has the same effect. Similarly, making the window smaller can hide the scrollbars. I observe this both in Kepler 1.0 and at the trunk.

Another manifestation of this (?) bug (on Ubuntu) is that if you run Kepler on a display not big enough (in the vertical dimension) to show the entire saved size of the Kepler window for a loaded workflow, the bottom of the Kepler window is truncated, e.g. one cannot see the workflow run status indicator in the bottom-left corner of the Kepler window. Maximizing the window on such a small display does not reveal the hidden portion of the GUI.

Verify which jvm/window manager/OS this occurs on. Have not seen this on windows or OSX. If this is not widespread on Ubuntu, punt this to 2.x.y. If it is common to all Ubuntu boxes, fix it before 2.0.0.
