May be it is not a bug.  If you open  file -  preferences -diagram 
defaults   you can choose the size of the initial window (may be you 
"have chosen"  500 x 400 pixels-without knowing it) you can get a 
bigger one if you wants)

I do not mean the initial window size - I'm referring to large diagrams
taking up more space than visible on screen at once. There is no obvious
way to extend the diagram - one has to draw a shape outside. IMHO this
is not intuitive and therefore a GUI bug. 

I call myself an experienced user and I stumbled across this several
times. Therefore, it should be fixed by always having some empty space
all around the diagram - reachable by using the scroll bars.

BTW: I just found out that using the cursor keys, one can get a past the
borders suggested by the scroll bars.
