Mark …Ha! "OOooh Myy Gawd" had I known this from the beginning it would all have "worked out of the box" because the resetting rects and locs of child objects of the group was causing the rect of the group to "jump around" hence there no fixed coord system to work from.
This is great… right we don't see this in the PI for groups… so definitely hidden! Another related mystery: there is a new check box in the position for groups [ ] resize when setting rect property what does this do?

When 'the clipsToRect' is set to true you get a group which acts like lockLocation is set, but is resizable. In this case the group's size is determined purely by the rect it has set, and not the union of the rectangles of its children. This might have been mentioned somewhere else in this thread, but its probably worth repeating if so as a group with clipsToRect true, and a resizeControl handler makes a good base for a custom control.
