Controls not refreshing properly when swWindow is resized

Hi, ever since I've upgraded from my winxp32/sw2011 setup to this new win7_64/sw2012 I've been noticing weird problems with the user interface not updating properly when the main window gets resized. This happens with both the solidworks controls and an addin that I have built for the company. On the solidworks controls everything ends up updating properly if I resize the control itself, but my addin ends up with its controls completely scrambled.

 

I can't understand if this is a framework problem or 64 bit related problem or what. All I know is that I've spent countless hours trying to fix my addin, and I'm convinced I've done everything I can, and this has to be some other issue.

 

Please see pictures below and comment.

 

Thanks in advance.

After resizing the main solidworks window, we can see that the task pane does not update properly....

...Unit I resize the taskpane which refreshes the container

Here's another screenshot with the same sort of thing and with my addin completely scrambled.
