[XForms] question box appears huge

I am having a problem with a question box. I use them throughout my code
but this one keeps putting up a question box that is so big it goes off
the left side of the screen and buttons that are huge. The text in the
label and on the buttons is also corrupted. I found out by trail and
error that if I show an alert box before making the call to
show_question, the question box is the correct size. Has anyone seen
something like this happen before? The show_alert is doing something to
XForms that is making the show_question box work. I guess like flushing
a buffer, reseting a pointer, or something. Below is the snippet from
the program with the show_alert that makes this work. This only happens
with the show_question call in the program. Elsewhere it works fine. 
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
 fl_show_alert("Nothing to write",
      fl_show_question("Write archive CD with current track layout?",
