When editing items in wxDataViewCtrl, the text box is not aligned with the original text shown in wxDataViewCtrl, but shifted right. So user can see part of the original text.

In 3.0.4, the text is also shifted right slightly, but it does cover the original text. So it looks fine to me.

The screenshot is taken from the unmodified dataview sample.

In 8f386265dc0db1b96d435c83cd1aaca5c2e9cdaa, the width of a tree
expander is changed to the native value on the platform. But some
calculations still use guessed value (m_lineHeight) as the width. This
fixes the value, by retrieving the width using the same method as in
