I need to research this, but my initial reaction is something along the lines of "YIKES!!!". And "that is not how this should be working?".

But I was already planning on creating my own "AbsolutePane" which would have a nice setXYWH method. How it is implemented internally is less relevant.

Thanks for the suggestion!
