    *We take the 15 pixels off the height of the form to account for the 
title bar.*

On windows ``self.Height`` includes the title bar - so the two panels 
have to be a bit less than half the height of the form. I couldn't see a 
Form property that would tell me the *visible* height of the form.

It looks like it would be better on Mono with just  :

(self.Height / 2)

(Which is more sensible) Can you take screenshots of that and I'll 
include a note.
