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 
to 800x600 the WINDOW DOES RESIZE ITSELF AND THEN IT STAYS THAT SIZE. 
It of course should not and that is the real problem.
