Weird IDE Menu beahaviour

I'm using D4 Standard under Win98 with the latest comctrls.dll.
The problem is that when i rearrange the IDE menus like this: Standard menu
(File, Edit, etc) on top, and component palette directly beneath:

----------------------------
FILE EDIT ----- ------
----------------------------
-------------------------------------
COMPONENT PALETTE-
-------------------------------------

You end up next i start D4 with these in their opposite order, ie.
Component palette always at top, file menu at bottom !!!

What's wrong??

Thanks in advance,
please also mail to gs...@doc.ic.ac.uk
