I'm back. I still have the situation where if Sidebar _is_ Always On Top,
_and_ a window is maximized, the background of Sidebar becomes black. I
would think that is a glitch though it did work fine yesterday.
Now I am running Sidebar _not_ Always On Top, and that seems to be better
fro my needs. I still think there's a problem though it's certainly not
serious. Thanks, again, DH
