Lost it.  

My test stack reliably showed the problem yesterday.  But...  Today when I opened Livecode 8.0.1 and threw a field and a label onto a new stack and selected them, the problem was not there.  

So, I guess I just needed to restart LiveCode.  

This also means I don't have a reliable recipe.
