I've noticed it on numerous occasions. IIUC the fade nodes continue until the
original region endpoint for when they were first created.

I think there is another option: Set the new endpoint at new region end and
disregard the rest of the curve beyond it.

That way you don't loose the curves that have been worked on before resizing and
you don't have to worry about trying to find the end node any more.

I'm not sure if it's an easy fix though.

 Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No!
 We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything
 I've ever done.
