Sorry.  Actually there are 3 listviews on the form.  1 on the left aligned panel 
and 2 which are sited on a TPageControl on separate Tabsheets.  The TPageControl 
is sited on the client aligned Panel.

No worries.  All of my lazarus development has mostly been with non-gui 
applications, but against my judgment I figured I'd give lazarus another go for 
a GUI app which was a mistake apparently.  The same exact GUI works perfectly 
compiled with Delphi.  No flicker, no problems at all.

Warm Regards,
