Another ping! Anyway, I'm ploughing through wxWidgets stuff and it's
horrible! Something won't resize properly and I'm still unsure what it
is - I've spent hours at the keyboard trying to get this widget to
size properly but I just don't yet see why it doesn't work.

I'm currently lost in a sea of ->Layout(), ->Fit(), and
->FitInside()'s ! Soon should be out the other end and then I can
submit the patch. :)

Best Regards, Brian.
