They actually ought to at least be placed reasonably, maybe resized,
according to component size. They look really stupid on a big
component. Not sure how exactly they're suppose to behave during

Thank you, I have applied it to the devel branch.
You may want to look at Flowchart - Box to a slightly better
implementation. This one has the weirdness that if you pick the
top-left corner and resize it smaller than its minimum size, you
actually move it. That is not quite the way it should be.
