Thanks Wilhelm and Scott.  I've recrafted the effect I want using  
revChangeWindowSize, and it works nicely.  I've never liked drawers  
very much, to tell the truth, but for this one application the idea  
of them is right. I think it is better implemented with the built-in  
routines, though, and now I don't have to monkey with anything for  
the Windows version.

I looked at your stack yesterday after coming across it in Gmane,  
Wilhelm.  Nice work.  I've saved the stack for future reference.
