Interesting, I wasn't aware of that. Is a group really limted by the 
formattedheight of its contents? The original report mentions the 
display area (well, "canvas",) and if that's it then the contents should 
accomodate anything. Of course, here I am talking again without having 
actually tested it.

Wondering how much text is in 32K pixels at, say, 10-point type...
