Because of the fixed size dialog, I think I have to specify the dialog's 
size, don't I ?

I wasn't sure either. I used the frmBackup.xrc as a model to build 
dlgReassignDropOwned.xrc. But the tab seems too much. I removed it... 
but now it really looks like my previous dlgReassignDropOwned.xrc.

The XRC file attached is one with a dialog size specified, a modal 
dialog, and no notebook/panel/tab widgets. But I'm not sure about the 
correct sizing. XRCed shows me the dialog in a way and pgAdmin in 
another one. I don't quite understand this.
