I've been running into similar issues in that the IDE appears to set the
windowBoundRect - AFTER my app has already set it to allow for
combination menubar/toolbar windows at the top of screen.

When I then use the windowBoundingRect as a guide for automatic layout
of other windows in my app, then all appear in unexpected locations due
to the changes to the windowBoundingRect by the IDE

I have also discovered a crap load of problems using 'the effective
rect' of a stack (setting or getting) if the stack is not an open,
visible, resizable, stack.
