Window Resizing Head-scratcher...

At first, I thought I was reading my own email. LOL
Jason, this is the same problem I have.

The solution is to make every thing smaller than 800x600 to begin with 
and allow for the menus and docks, etc. first.....
BUT, that still does not explain why!!!!!! I even set the resize window 
to false and it still resized! I set the resize stack to false and it 
still resized.

My problem/bug was that NO RESIZE should mean NO RESIZE !!!!!! Of 
course I can make my graphics smaller to fit an 800x600. Of course I 
can build on an 800x600 and make sure it is right. Of course I can 
allow for a menu, dock bar etc.

But when I set the resize to false, I want no resize. I develop on a 
1024x768 and set window to 800x600 and after changing screen resolution 
It of course should not and that is the real problem.
