Problems again

1. The mouseEnter message is sent only when the Browse tool is being 

2. If two controls overlap, a mouseEnter message is sent whenever the 
mouse pointer crosses into a visible portion of a control. The control 
on the bottom receives a mouseEnter message only when the mouse pointer 
enters part of the control that can be seen. A control that is 
completely hidden by another control on top of it will never receive a 
mouseEnter message.

3. If the mouse button is down when the mouse pointer enters the 
control, no mouseEnter message is sent unless the mouse button is 
released while the pointer is still in the control.

4. If a control is shown (by changing its visible property to true or 
using the show command), and the mouse pointer is over the control when 
it is shown, Revolution sends a mouseEnter message to the control.

I would suspect number 3 above as a start.
