I've managed to make it work but it's a hack. In the .fd file the last
two objects for the form are free objects which occupy the same space as
each other but are in a different area of the form to the button. If I
edit the .fd file and move the button declaration to *before* the
declarations for the two free objects, then it gets drawn.

I'm not doing anything special to the free objects prior to fl_show_form
except for calling fl_hide_object on one of them.

Does this help any?
