I don't see this on OS X or XP with Revolution 2.5.

I should clarify.

I made some fields with 3D turned off and a border of 2.  I set the 
left and right so that I thought they should butt.  They do.

I did not use a stack with butting borders made some time ago, so this 
does not indicate whether there was a change or not.  This does fit 
with my memory of some time ago, though.

Now, our models of what should butt might be different.  I tend to use 
a model of whole coordinates as being _between_ the pixels.  That is, a 
pixel is the rectangle formed by n,m,n+1,m+1.  This means that a 
rectangle contains whole pixels and does not split them down the edge.

So, I set the left of the right-hand field to the right of the 
left-hand field.

(Borders grow from the edge inward.)

Maybe you have focusBorder on?

I have vague memory of a border-like thing that grows outward, but I 
forgot what it is.
