It seems to be related to the brush changes. The symptom is that the background is white not the grey that is expected.

Outlook has its own scrolling process (separate top and bottom arrows drawn). The problem is that the native control makes the item
spacing (not height) is related to the number of lines of text. The rewrite that I did does not do that yet, the item spacing is
constant and at two lines. This makes the size of the item list larger than the separate scrolling expects. So when Outlook "knows"
the last item is displayed and removes the arrow, our last item is only partially displayed.

The internal scrolling seems ok.

I'm going to start looking into these two items this week.
