Oneway resizable windows (now fixed)

After reinstalling Rev to no avail and creating test projects each of 
which wouldn't allow vertical resizing greater than a total of about 25 
lines, this began to extend to Rev tool stacks such as the application 

One more stab at it was to create a new stack which exhibited all the 
horrible resize crankiness.  Again I set and reset the stack resize 
property and the live resizing, etc.  Then out of desperation I added 
from the object library the windows window resize widget and played with 
it.  Saved the stack.  Quit Rev.  Started Rev. created a new stack and 
realized that all tool and script windows plus the new stack were mouse 
resizeable within the development environment.  Hooray!!

Now what went wrong originally?  I didn't script anything to do that or 
play with any controls except to reset Rev. preferences to their default.

Go figure.

However, for those that find themselves in a similar pickle for now try 
creating a new project and adding the resize window control widget, 
save, quit and reopen.
