MDI mode. I was resizing the console child window. As for why I was
resizing--- why not? It seems like a reasonable thing to do if I want a
larger console, no? On the other hand, if the console is not actually
resizable (or you do not want it to be dynamically resizable) then the
window shouldn't be resizable.

As for it working on your systems and not mine, I don't know why that
would be though it is not limited to a single one of my systems. I'm
willing to accept some sort of interference from a piece of software I
have universally installed (SecureCRT for instance), but I'm not sure what
would cause this sort of behavior.
