Bernie is probably sleeping over there in the UK, so I thought I'd jump 
in and respond (and I'm getting to your other questions too---just got 
home from a full day)

If you look at the coordinates for the window in TWM, you might notice 
they are specified as LTWH meaning left top width and height (since 
this is the default option). The SETRECT toolbox parameters are LTRB 
(left top right and bottom). The popup option that allows a choice of 
either the standard LTRB format or the more intuitive LTWH. .TWM 
automatically converts the width and height to right/bottom and that is 
why the numbers are different.
