We won't be including the sample apps in our tree. Probably just
headers in pgadmin/include/ogl and required source in pgadmin/ogl

Hmm, interesting. Is that coming from wxrc, or when building xrcDialogs.cpp?

My first suggestion would be to select the "Default View" option, and
see if that helps. Failing that, comment out the code that sets either
the default or the stored perspective, and see what happens if you let
the controls figure out their own default layout.

Trying to get the size of something before it's drawn perhaps?

Probably a simple counting error. I suspect theres just one row too many.

Sounds like a plan!
