:)  Well, I don't know how to get the current position under the mouse 
in the RichEdit control without forcing a button click :)  I wish I did, 
but if you have popup help turned on, this behaviour s currently 
necessary.  Any insight into how we might obtain this information 
otherwise would be great!

Yeah, we're just using default spin controls.  I believe we can change 
the behaviour if people feel it makes more sense.
