It normally doesn't fire if you're using fullscreenMode. But if you use 
mobileSetFullScreenRectForOrientations, then it does send a resizeStack 
message. From the dictionary:

"Normally when a fullscreenMode is set the stack is not resized and does 
[not] receive the resizeStack message. The rect is set after the 
orientationChanged message is sent. If the rect for the new orientation 
is different to the current stack rect the resizeStack message will be 
sent once the new rect is applied."

Note the error in the docs omitting the word "not". Confusing, yes.

This sounds like the height of the status bar, and the stack is being 
drawn underneath it. I haven't tried it but you might be able to fix it 
by setting the stack height to the height of the screenrect.
