The Grid's setEditorField is initializing funky

I am seeing some weird behavior with the grid’s setEditorField function in Vaadin 7.6.6. In short, when trying to set the editorField in the constructor, nothing happens. However, if I add a selection listener to the grid, and call setEditorField in the selection event, everything works fine. Why? Does the editorField need to be set in some order? I have disabled everything else in the Grid to make sure there are no strange collisions, but I am coming up with nothing.

In other words, adding this in my constructor, it does not work:


But, this works fine:

complexGrid.addSelectionListener((SelectionEvent.SelectionListener) selectionEvent -> {

… has anyone else experienced this?
