Thanks for the offer but I have made some progress.  In producing a test 
program, I think I may have isolated the problem.  It seems to me that 
it relates to the BorderStyle property of the forms in Delphi.  If this 
is set to bsNone (which my forms were) then I get the problem described. 
If the form is created with e.g. bsSizeable and then the BorderStyle is 
changed to bsNone at run time then everything works as expected.

I am not sure if this is expected behaviour but at least I have a fairly 
painless workaround.  Perhaps you could try this on your test program 
and see if you see the same phenomenon.

Thanks again for your help.
