Can I have $1 for each then? :)  I should at least clear enough for a 
good lunch and save some for din-din. :)

Both app and source work as they should. I don't see the scroll button 
bottom bunching up like that, too short. Resize all day, follows along 
nicely, no erase issues.  I think that since the scroll control is 
attached to the list, and esized/resized/ and handled by the OS in 
large part, that you may indeed have some funky OS thing going on?

I suggest that you offload anything personal, and send your machine to 
me, as it's clearly in need of repair. You go get a new one while I 
refurbish your old one. I'll send it back to you once things are 
working to my specs. Could be as early as 2009. It's a win-win for all. 
You get a new Mac, I get a new broken Mac, Apple gets supported. Don't 
dawdle.

:)

When this mystery is fathomed though, let me be the first to say "I 
scroll you so."

Wait, I've tracked this to bad CVS code in the Cocoa headers...the 
comment there says "Dead C Scrolls." Clear as mud now.
