TabControl created dynamically won't show

Anyone else run into this?

I have a completely blank form. On this form, I create a label at the top; a scrollbar along the right side, and a TabControl which occupies the remainder of the form.

For each object/control, I am first adding it using AddObject, then New, etc.

I create four tab pages. On each page, I create a panel. On each panel, I create a series of labels, and maybe a button or two.

When the form is closed, every control on the form gets disposed of.

No problem so far.

If I try to re-open the form, my TabControl doesn't show. The label shows up, the scrollbar shows up... no errors are reported anywhere. The TabControl just doesn't appear. I know it's there, though - if I MsgBox out the top, left, width, and height of the TabControl, I get the same four values as when it did appear.

Why would dynamic creation of a TabControl work properly only once?

Code

I thought it might me helpful to post part of the code. The MsgBox'es around line 460 are for diagnostic purposes.
