2.1 has a few GM bugs...
Not that 2.5 isnt bug free but it is (ahem) better behaved.

My guess is that an old position got stuck or didn't get updated
because some event blocked the update. This can happen when you
have a pending error, self-resizing stack or a resizestack handler that
doesn't pass resizestack or send revUpdateGeometry back.

Try to send a revUpdateGeometry to your stack to see if it gets fixed.
If not, clear the revgeomtry settings for your control, and then
reassign the GM rules. This usually fixes the problem...

In some cases, you can put an empty resizestack handler to block the
GeomtryManager, resize your stack/controls and then remove the blocking
handler. Doesn't always work though but it's one way to fix it.

Hope that helps ya
