Windows resize when closing

Why does the windows resize when you close them?
F.ex. if you are writing an article and then hit the "Save and Close" button, the window will first resize and then close.

Is this a feature or a bug?

I never noticed that happening when I use it.  Perhaps a side-effect of VisualBasic forms?

Beware: technical gibberish coming up.  Believe it or not, its the DHTML editor's fault.  (I know, I know, its *always* the DHTMLEdit's fault - damn you Microsoft!).

The darn thing has a memory leak where if you create a form with a DHTMLEdit in it and then close the form, memory leaks!  The only fix is to re-use forms.  So if you open an article up and close it, we keep the form around and re-use it for the next article you open.  This means we have to set everything back to "default" before we use it again.

It could be just a matter of moving the sizing call until after the form is hidden.  I'll look into it.
