That's a bug in d.rast.edit. The overview window consists of three
parts: the canvas (the portion containing the map), the vertical
scrollbar and the horizontal scrollbar. The canvas is supposed to grow
or shrink along with the top-level window, leaving the scrollbars with
a fixed width (vertical) or height (horizontal). However, the weights
were set on the wrong window, so everything tries to remain a fixed

I have committed a fix in the current development version, but you can
fix the problem locally by changing lines 157-158 of
grass-6.3.0/etc/d.rast.edit.tcl from:

	grid rowconfigure    . 0 -weight 1
	grid columnconfigure . 0 -weight 1
	grid rowconfigure    .overview 0 -weight 1
	grid columnconfigure .overview 0 -weight 1

With that change, the scrollbars should remain visible if the overview
window is shrunk.
