Harry Potter's magic button - a solution to another tricky group bug

Not sure, but I'd guess that the OP is falling afoul of the elastic
nature of groups that have lockloc=false. When that is the case,
groups automatically snap to the bounds of whatever they contain
whenever they get the chance -- i.e. when the things they contain move
or are themselves resized (I believe, I haven't tested all the
variations here). That can cause some unexpected behavior if you're
expecting groups to behave as if their lockloc were true, which allows
them to be sized and positioned as most other controls are (whether
those controls have their lockloc set to true or false).
