The "tree" window template definition, in common with all except one window, does not have the wimp_WINDOW_NO_BOUNDS flag set. It's curious that all other windows have this flag bit set in code rather than in the template, which seems wrong to me. Anyway, fixing the various tree view windows would require changes in more places than the templates AFAICS, so I propose to change the template definitions.

The tree view code needs to be replaced at some point anyway, so this can be regarded as a temporary fix.

After a re-think and some more information, I submitted patches to the four template definition files, to OR in the wimp_WINDOW_NO_BOUNDS flag bit. I submitted them via an email to the ns-dev mailing list.

The treeview code was updated in late December. Previously the flag bit must have been applied in code. The templates are the correct place to specify such fundamental window behaviour.
