Well I thought this was the solution - and now it says this is the solution
in the 0.87 manual BUT..... if the mutiline field is within a group, even if
the group is the last defined, then the problem still exists.

Also I notice that using fdesign to raise an object which is in a group
removes it from the group and puts it right at the end of the object list. I
would have expected it to place the raised object at the end of the group and
maybe raise the whole group.

Has this been fixed in 0.87? - I've not got that version yet (being on hp-ux).
