Helps a lot , thanks !  works again.....

will think of upgrading to 2.5 after the release of Version 2
of my product....

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

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

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

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

xccc> Hope that helps ya
