This is XP specific bug... Such an app works perfectly fine under Win98, the
line appears only on XP.
Nobody pointed a way to fix this... (perhaps only MS can fix this...)

Forgot to mention that my app is not even MFC, a plain simple window one...
So it is not even an MFC problem.

Hey Phill,

I was reading the FAQ on wxWindows site http://www.wxwindows.org/ , in that
there is a mention of a 'manifest' file required for XP apps and they have a
link http://delphi.about.com/library/bluc/text/uc111601a.htm regarding it.
In this linked document, there is some explanation about XP 'themes' - which
handle two versions of common controls.

Is it likely that this line problem is due to the try to maintain the
backward compatibility in XP? Would you like to explore this further??
