Something along the way probably triggered the Geometry Manager to recache
itself for that card. You can prompt it to do this by executing a
"revCacheGeomtry" command from the message box. Sometimes, I find that it
doesn't update but after pulling the underlying code apart to see how it
works, "revCacheGeomtry true" seems to fix it.
I was one a staunch supporter of the Geometry Manager but like so many that
have advised me in the past, I tend to roll my own now, especially for
complicated window layouts.
