 Am working on layout now.

+This one required some thinking and sitting on. The results of that 
+are now in svn, and make the testapp *layout* the same as with 
+MS.Net. It wasn't so much the layoutcode as the fact that textboxes 
+were creating their handles prematurely which caused some other code 
+afterwards to execute differently and thereby affect layout.
+MS most likely has different logic for their layout and therefore 
+doesn't run into that issue, even if they were to create the handle 
+earlier (which they're not).
+Now, there are still two issues with the testapp:
+1) When run on Linux, because font sizes are different, it looks like 
+crap and cut off, with the window being too small. The way MS does 
+the fontscaling doesn't help much there, seems to actually hurt it. 
+(See this article: 
+http://blogs.msdn.com/mharsh/archive/2004/01/25/62621.aspx )
+2) Your Testapp is designed for two rows of tabs, we end up with 
+three. I'm assigning the bug to Jackson now so he can look into that 
+(Jackson owns TabControl).
+Thanks for you patience...
