I was just supplying new information about the problem as I came to it. 
Sorry for filling everyone's mailbox all day... Personally I have a fast
connection and my mailserver is in my kid's closet so I don't have to

Right, but what about the fact that this has changed in the last few
days or weeks... because now creating a brand new application with two
forms causes both forms to immediately show at startup (just tested
after updating from CVS)  yet rebuilding an application created a few
weeks ago doesn't do that if the .lrs file hasn't been changed. 
Something is still a little wacko and it wasn't doing that 2 weeks ago. 
I'm not positive if it changed sooner or later because I didn't update
my CVS for a couple of weeks until the new component install code was
