Resizing windows causing drawing issues

I've been testing/using Display Fusion for 2-3 months now on Windows 7. It's a great product and I imagine we will be looking to buy more licenses when we roll out Windows 7.

However, I've been seeing an issue ever since I can remember when using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. After resizing or moving the program to another screen, the query window gets all messed upon scrolling. The attached PNG shows what I'm talking about.

Attempting to reproduce the issue while not running DisplayFusion turns up nothing. The upgrade to 3.1.9 also seemed to have no effect.

Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks.

Jon, I'm curious, what kind of display interaction does DF's taskbar have where it might corrupt the desktop?

started up the debug log
started Management Studio

then changed monitors and re-sized a few times to reproduce problem

For some reason SQL Management Studio has real issues with global window hooks. :( There isn't anything I can do to fix this unfortunately. However, there is a workaround. You can add a Compatibility setting for SQL Management Studio, and have it unload the hooks while SQL MS is running. This will hinder some other DisplayFusion functionality, but it may be a good trade-off for the redrawing issues.
