I couldn't reproduce it in a fresh application so I started digging.

What happens is the form receives a RESIZE message before being shown,
but only if it's trying to position the form according to the screen
size.  Other position methods don't seem to trigger this.

Since I create components in the onshow and then rearrange them in the
onresize events it would crap out attempting to move a control that
didn't exist yet because OnShow hadn't been called.
