Table/List field won't expand

Description of the issue

 FileMaker Product(s) involved:All versions.  This bug was first reported late in 2006 that I know of.  Operating System(s) involved:Windows XP Professional 2002 SP2  Detail description of the issue:When viewing as table or list, the bottom row will not expand to show all of the data in the field.  This is very annoying when there is a lot of data in the field and one can’t expand the column or when there are multi-lines.    Exact steps to reproduce the issue:Create a text field and type four lines of text.  Expected Result:The field should expand to show all data, as it currently does when displaying pop-up menus or drop-down lists. It should produce the scroll bar and allow the layout to scroll down to see all expanded text.  Actual Result:If it is the last record, it will only show one line.  If next to last record, it will only show two lines and so forth.  Exact text of any error message(s) that appeared:None  Any additional configuration information/troubleshooting that is relevant to the issue:With the possibility of using script triggers in tables and the other enhancements added to table view, it becomes viable to use for more than developer use.  But until we can trust that the field expands properly, it is worthless.  Any workarounds that you have found:None.  If someone wants to see what is in the last field, they must attach Tooltip or sort their records so that bottom record is NOT on the bottom.  It is kludge when it should work properly out of the box.
