The one in EnhComponents is compatible with IB, however I would rather
solve the problem that you are seeing.

I guess the first thing to check is that there are no settings in the
IB_Connection.FieldsDisplayWidth or the same property of the lookup
dataset that are causing the incorrect size to be used.

Also check the contents of the GridLinks property of the lookupcombo
itself. There have been recent changes to how that property is
implemented that we may need to check.

Can you tell me whether the size changes on the second or third
attempt to show the popup list and also whether the lookup happens to
be the first or last column in the grid? I am just wondering whether
the problem relates to the order of initialisation.
