Bummer :-(

I must admit I have never knowingly run across this since in every case
I can think of when I disable a group and then enable it, all controls
in the group were enabled before hand and should again be enabled after
the group is enabled.

However, I can imagine all sort of instances where you would definitely
want the controls to retain their prior enabled states when
enabling/disabling a containing group.
