    Does anyone have any experience setting up a layer-backed NSView nested inside an NSScrollView? The view is an animated version of an NSOutlineView and works perfectly except for redraw issues on resize of the NSScrollView. I was able to overcome the fading effect associated with large CALayers by using a CAScrollLayer for layer-backing, but the view shifts vertically several pixels while resizing the NSScrollView - up when making smaller and down when making bigger. I can call setNeedsDisplay:, but the view draws shifted first, then corrects itself. The result is a jumpy NSView on resize.

    If this doesn't make any sense, I can post a video of the problem. I don't know, however, if the frame rate will be high enough to capture the problem clearly.

    If the NSScrollView is the wrong approach here, any suggestions would be appreciated.
