+Summary: MDI Form: Cascade does not resize windows
+Repro is ./ch02_Forms/OpacitySample and ./ch02_Forms/TransparencySample 
+from the sample code for the book "Windows Forms 2.0 Programming," by 
+Chris Sells and Michael Weinhardt, sources available from 
+Each tested on SVN head on Win32, 1.2.5_5 Win32, and 1.2.5_5 Suse VM 
+behaves as expected.
+On MSFT both .NET and native windows, cascade causes the windows to be 
+rearranged and resized such that the last window always is within the 
+bounds of the MDI window.  (In the case where there are many many 
+windows, multiple cascades are used).
+In Mono the windows are rearranged into a cascade (some cases not even 
+that), but they are never resized.
+Say with three windows, if one does TileVertical then the three windows 
+are made tall and tiled.  If one then does Cascade the windows are moved 
+into cascade, but not resized, thus the first fits the window height and 
+the rest overflow.
+If one does TileHorizontal and then Cascade, then the three long windows 
+are all positioned at the top left.
