Recently I began using Win/XP SP2 scheduled task function to auto-launch three BM 1.6.7 jobs nightly. Backups run correctly and end normally.

I noticed with the execution of each job the "unminimized BN dialog box" shifts farther and farther left (about .5 inches per run), so now only the bottom right corner of each jobs' dialog is visible on the screen. Fortunately I am still able to see and click "OK" to close the dialog at job end.

The shifting occurs when the job is auto initiated by XP or the BM Editor.

This dialog "shifting-position-with-each-run" behavior is not happening with other applications I use, e.g., Photoshop, Word, etc.

a) Do you have any ideas what is causing this "shifting-position-with-each-run" behavior?
b) Without uninstalling/reinstalling BM to attempt to correct, what do you suggest for corrective action?

I'll be happy to provide screen shots if that would help (need your e-mail address).

Shifting may happen when you use some docked appliation toolbars on your screen left side or top, or your Windows taskbar is moved there. This is a bug in BM that will be fixed in the next version.

To schedule, use command line module (bmagicc.exe), not BM GUI. Command line module does not who any dialog boxes.
