I've just started using squirrel (neat) and noticed either a gottcha
or further evidence of the need to rtfm (read the fine manual).

My firebird database has text blob fields. Double clicking on one cell
brings up a dialog box with the content. The top of the dialog box seems
to lie "under" the main panel and it is not possible, with the mouse,
to click and reposition that dialog box (or to close just it, etc).
