Extension of the object/instance life line is possible but I think the way it is implemented might not be correct and should be discussed. If you have an "self calling" method that is at the beginning of an object's life time you can drag the life time until the end but you also get the impression that the method call takes as long as the obejct's life time. I made a screenshot of a sequence diagramm made in MS Visio (Ugh!) how it should be and how umbrello does. Watch the first object and method top left.

(unfortunately not the best quality)
Visio screen:


The life time should be expandable independently of the method call. Additionally it would be nice if the dotted return line would be optional.
