Hi André,

I didn't test this in 2.7, but in earlier versions there used to 
be a problem that involved changing the decorations and affected 
the resizable of the stack on all Windows platforms. This is a 
Revolution bug that has already been reported to BugZilla:


Since you're including all default decorations plus metal while 
there is no metal on Windows available, why don't you set the 
decorations to "default"? That should "solve" your problem.
