I've brought this up with @jspahrsummers earlier, but it seems to me like all things considered, setting the frame of a view in it's -drawRect: method is a bad idea. I think registering for NSViewFrameDidChangeNotification and altering the frame there is a better solution. We discussed earlier that it may be possible that the implementations of some NSView subclasses (NSTextView, in this case) could be setting the frame without using the appropriate accessor or triggering the notification, but unless evidence is found to suggest otherwise, I'd say it's a safe assumption that this notification will be posted on frame change.

Of course, if you guys have already tried this and ran into issues with it it's reasonable to keep this around.

No, I don't think we tried the notifications before.

Have a crack in a pull request and submit it :).
