  size is changed (changing the border with) the child view object will stay fixed 
  relative to the axis (imagine an arrow pointing to a feature).
+ The solution to this appears to be to place and draw children relative to the
+ parent's contentsRect, rather than their geomentry().  Setting the viewport to
+ contentsRect() rather than geometry() in kstviewobject::paint() does this, drawing
+ the child relative to the contents rect (set, for 2dplot, to the axis box).  
+ But there are problems with this:
+ 	-the clip regions are still relative to geometry
+	-drag and drop are still relative to geometry
+	-The child can't be moved outside the contents rect.
+ Hmmm....
 More bugs:
 - Lines and arrows are clipped
 - Selection points are always clipped even if the object lies below.
