This is one approach we can take. Ultimately RadGridView should handle this scenario out of the box and be able to size the child grid correctly. However implementing this will require re-implementation of our UI virtualization, which is not a trivial task. This is definitely a scenario we want to address in the future - in post Q2 2010 timeframe.
