Clicking the object first selects the containing view (the scroll view), then clicking again selects the contained view (the table view). This is intended behavior. I know it's not completely intuitive, but coding the alternative leads to tons of exceptions. The selection logic as it is is simple. So this part of the issue is not a bug. It should be improved later and I will add it to a feature request.

The second part of this issue is a bug. Resizing a table in a split view shouldn't be possible without resizing the splitview itself. Once the table becomes a child of the splitview it is bound to the size of the view it's contained in. The issue here is that the editor object is killed or deleted somehow and the tableview is no longer editable. That part of this issue is the only part which is truly a bug.

It is not possible to select a column in a NSTableView, though selecting the scrollview as well as selecting the tableview itself work. Strangely, resizing a column do work.

If the NSTableView is embedded in a splitview, not only it is not possible to select a column, but resizing it does not work.
