One of the things I learned about moldings (after I got most of them done) is the use of shims to make the mitered joint fit. For crown moldings, coping the short molding is a really nice way to allow for movement and still keep it looking nice. For some of the large moldings, they actually used plaster so the expansion matched the walls.
