[Uml-devel] Umbrello UML Modeller question

        I have a question regarding Umbrello sequence diagrams.  When 
synchronous message is sent to an object, the lifeline shows a rectangle 
along it indicating the duration of the message processing and a return 
arc back to the sender.  But when the receiving object in turn issues 
messages to other objects in the course of this processing, the rectangle 
cannot be resized to accomodate more than one or two such messages.  The 
rectangle that indicates the message processing duration is always the 
same size.  I tried using sequence numbers like 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc but 
that made no difference.  Is there some way to capture that some message 
processing is part of the processing of a message that invoked it.  Other 
tools I have used either adjusted the duration rectangle automatically or 
allow their size to be adjusted.
