I have committed a change that should fix this issue (among with similar issues for table and outline views).

If you have a window with a textfield inside it, and you
enlarge the window while you are editing the textfield,
weird things happen - the newly exposed area is not drawn in the
background color, and trying to edit at the end of the string
causes the pointer to disappear and your new text shows up

I think the problem is that when the textfield is enlarged,
the attached field editor should be enlarged too, but it's not.

So it should be a matter of looking at the autoresizing masks /
clipview code in NSCell -_setUpTextWithFrame:etc. and making
sure that the field editor tracks changes in the size of the
text field. :-)
