Adding these two lines to my application produces some
bizarre drawing behavior with the folder when the window
is resized. Upon resizing, sometimes the folder gets resized,
sometimes not. Objects sometimes overlap other objects that
did not get moved on resize, etc.

The individual page forms do not resize at all;
apparently I have to resize them by hand? I did not fool with
the gravity of the individual page forms - maybe those need to
be set to RESIZE_ALL as well...anyway, sorry for the vague message,
but there does appear to me to be some problem with the
tabbed folder when resizing is allowed.
