[lazarus] You can get onresize BEFORE onshow...

Blew my mind, but this explains a random bug that has bothered me for 
almost a year.

In GTK with certain form positionings defined, a form resize event _can_ 
(not always) be triggered before the form's onshow, but after the oncreate.

Since I was creating components in the onshow and then using them in 
onresize this kind of caused me problems.  Initially I did this because 
of a bug in Lazarus which has long-since been fixed, but never moved the 
creation code.

Specifically on _some_ systems this will happen every time if the form's 
position is set to "poscreencenter" and on other systems happens 
everytime if set to "podesktopcenter" but generally if it does it on one 
position type it does NOT do it on the other.

Not really a bug, I guess, just a "that's odd".
