It happens because the MDI Children aren't created with the MDI Parent as it's owner. They are created as top level windows, then have their parent changed via SetParent, but the Owner window isn't changed (it can't be actually). This interferes with typical windows child/parent behavior. You can see the same problems with WindowBlinds.

So Aero/DWM is altering the parent?
