This used to happen to me all the time. I finally nailed down the reason 
and now I can't remember exactly what it was. I just spent some time 
trying to reproduce it (but I'm using the latest MC rather than Rev) and 
I can't get it to happen so maybe it was fixed. My vague recollection is 
that it involved setting the style of the window -- i.e., every time you 
change a window from toplevel to modal, and then back again, it would 
shrink. I remember making a test stack that repeatedly changed modality 
(if I remember right) and I was able to get the window to shrink 
entirely out of existence, leaving nothing but a title bar. At any rate,
