I think it makes a lot of sense to separate the two "issues"

1) That the patch canvas "grows", and
2) that a patch canvas can be bigger then the screen size

since a solution to the one might not be a solution to the other.

As for the second. We have different screens with different  
resolutions and size. So what can fit on one screen might not fit on  
another screen. Nothing wrong with that. But it would sure be nice if  
Pd or tk/tcl or both would resize the patch and add scroll bars such  
that it fit into the screen incase it was "meant to be" bigger.

I don't suppose I'm wrong by stating that linux users have the same  
problem, but just have better control over the window system such  
that resizing the windows is an easy job.
