Scroll Bars in scrolling groups

OK I'm stumped. I have a scrolling group consisting 20 other groups each
with 2 fields and a button. I place these sub groups and the controls in
them in the parent group from top to bottom. The sub groups go off the
bottom of the parent group as expected. Everything looks perfect and can set
the vscroll via script and see the sub groups that are out of view as
expected. BUT.. when I show the vscroll bar(even with messages disabled),
all the sub groups move up and to the left. The top sub group hugs top of
the parent group and all the sub groups hug the parent group on the left.
Why? If I place the subgroups while the vscroll bar is visible then the top
groups move up to the left and the remaining one stay where I put them. Any
help would be appreciated.
