Form properties dialog is completely obscured by the form

In beta 6 win 7, macro -> new form  -  the properties dialog is completely hidden behind the form.

And with this code slick won't let me set a breakpoint at all - it says "breakpoints are not supported for this project".

Code: [Select]
#include "slick.sh"

defeventtab form5;
void ctlcommand1.lbutton_up()
{
   message("hi gp");
}


_command void test123() name_info(',')
{
   message("hi gp");
}

Also, forgot to say, when I place a button control on a form, the height of the button is way too small - you can't read the caption "ctlcommand1"

ok, so that's because I'm trying to set the breakpoint in the debugee rather than the debugger.  If I set the breakpoint with the debugger, it doesn't break in the lbutton_up function.  Should it?  I run the form using "load and run" from the form design window.

If I run the form as above, then go to the debugger and clear then set the breakpoint, slick says "error enabling breakpoint: JDWP error: an unexpected internal error has occurred in the virtual machine".

If I run the form not from the designer i.e. using "show form1", then the breakpoints do work and there's no error.
