OK, so it seems that your app uses the listview in LVS_REPORT mode,
and that it wants to make it bahave like a spreadsheet (that is,
you want to be able to individually select any cell from the
row/column matrix of the listview). Hence the OWNERDRAW, as by
default a listview in REPORT more can either select the cell in
the first column or the entire row.

Now, I haven't used MFC before, so I don't know if this behaviour
is done in your app or in MFC code. If it's in your app, it should
be simple enough to add some print statements to figure out the
paint order and to confirm/ruleout this theory. If it's done in
MFC, I'm afraid you'll need to get creative, 'cause I can't help.

But the problem seems to be in the order of events (or some missing
notifications). Print statements are what you want: they'll help you
figure out (1) if you get all required notifications, and (2) if they
arrive in the right order.
