Shadow of a closed form

Hi,
My application is using VS2003 , VB.Net with Sql server 2000. The
application has an MDI environment with several MDI child forms in the main
MDI form. At times , just at times due to dont know why, when i close one of
the child forms it close down but leaves a shadow of itself on the MDI form .
I have the menu options for selecting other forms up in the top part of the
MDI form. Only this part does not have the shadow of the closed child form,
might be because the closed child form was not overlapping the menuoptions.
Now with my application running and having a shadow of the previously closed
form when i go to any other application on my machine and then go back to the
VB.Net application, it now has the shadow of the other application. this is a
very strange behavior and i dont know why it is happening. Can any body give
me any hints or clue to this, i am pretty sure many of you out there have had
this problem.
thanks in Advance.
Please help!

Ritesh, thanks for you help but i still have the same problem even when i
open them in maximize state. I can not use showDialogue because i would want
the user to have the felixiblity of resizing it. Do you know the casue of
this issue? Do yo by any chance know if this is a known bug and if so if
there is any article on it from microsoft?

thanks
