Mdi Child behavior

P: n/a
In my Mdi Application, I load a default child form at startup using
WindowState = Maximized.

If I open another child form, it is also Maximized. When the child form
maximizes, it looks like all of the active child forms (all 2 of them) go
through a series of changes from WindowState Normal back to Maximized. It
does it quickly (say 400 ms), but it is noticable and it irritates me (since
I designed it, and did not intend for this to happen).

After testing with the second child window, I exit it.

So far, so good (other than the annoying flicker that I can't figure out).

Today, I went to open the second child window again (I forgot to test a
feature). After it was called, both windows took on a Cascade looking effect.
Instead of clicking the Maximize button, I tried to resize the window I
wanted to use, and that was when I noticed the child forms will not resize.

I created a second test Mdi Application, but it behaves normally (it allows
resizing and there is no noticable flicker when going from one form to

Does anyone have a clue what I could have done to cause this? The
application I have built that uses this is quite large, so just posting the
code would take some time. If I knew the relivant code, I'm sure it would be
smaller, but then I would know what area to play around with.

I am open to any ideas.
