Horizontal Swimlanes hierarchical layout does not consider lane labels

0 votes
I have an horizonlal swimlane diagram.

One lane label is "Integration and API" and contains a single node (default height, width extended)

If I push Layout > Swimlane > Hierarchic the diagram is nicely layout, but the height of the lane with the above label is not sufficient and the label overflows in the adjacent lanes partially covering their labels.

Is it possible to instruct the layout algorithm not to shrink below the label lenght?

Yes, there is a quick workaround that consists in increasing the "Minimum inset" from the default of 10 to 30, but it obviously expands also lanes that do not need this extra space.
