Yes, those :).

A lot more :). For example: placing a TGroupBox into the form and then 
placing a button in that groupbox, selecting it. Then move the button: a 
trail of complete square boxes of markers is left behind. Not a 1-pixel 
line, but the full 10 by 10 pixel box or so. All blue and green lines 
are left behind on controls, so moving them around a little bit and they 
all have blue and green borders :). Do you know the cause, solution?
