The map composer, on OS X at least, always displays an existing map in a shrunken view rather than at the fullest possible extent for the window. I've attached a picture that shows this.

Is this still true? I tried the print composer on a macbook with William's nightly build (856347c4 (SVN r13598)). The default size there seems ok to me (appr. left half of the screen is preview and the right half is widget).

Sorry for the delay. For my cmake builds, it is still true. I do not know what might be different that would cause this. I tried making my own xcode build, but it is failing to build with current trunk for me.

This is still a problem on OS X, but only when a project file (qgs) is reopened. I.e., if you have an active project and composer item, opening, closing, and opening the map composer item is fine, but if you quit QGIS or reopen that project, then the composer item is displayed oddly as shown in the attached image.

Is this still an issue? I can't reproduce it under current master on osx. There's been changes to the composer code which may have fixed this too. I'll close this for now, please reopen if you still see issues.
