CToolBarCtrl GPF during Create

I'm trying to create a tool bar control in a dialog (something like the small toolbar in the standard Open/Save dialog). However, when the program is first run it GPF's when creating the toolbar control. After the program has been run once, subsequent executions of the program work fine. This only seems to happen under Windows 95. NT doesn't "seem" to have a problem creating the control.

Here's a snippet of code  - just the creation part that actually GPF's.

    CToolBarCtrl    MyToolBar;

    if( ! MyToolBar.Create( WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | CCS_TOP | CCS_NOPARENTALIGN |
                                CCS_NODIVIDER | TBSTYLE_TOOLTIPS,
                                CRect(10,10,100,40), this, 50384 ) )
    {
        TRACE( "Failed to create toolbar\n" );
        return;
    }

Am I completely missing something? I've tried putting both a call to InitCommonControls and AfxOleInit with no effect.

The following code is from one of my old projects. It works well under 95 and NT.

CRect rtToolBar(0,0,0,0);
m_wndStyleBar.Create(WS_BORDER | WS_VISIBLE | WS_CHILD |
      TBSTYLE_WRAPABLE | TBSTYLE_TOOLTIPS,
      rtToolBar,this, IDR_TOOLSTYLE);
      m_wndStyleBar.AutoSize();

GetDlgItem( IDC_TOOLBAR)->GetWindowRect( &rtToolBar);
ScreenToClient( &rtToolBar);

m_wndStyleBar.SetWindowPos( &CWnd::wndTop ,
                        rtToolBar.left, rtToolBar.top,
                        -1, -1, SWP_NOSIZE | SWP_SHOWWINDOW);

m_wndStyleBar.CheckButton( m_nToolsStyle + BUTTON_INCR );
m_wndStyleBar.SetSelectedID(m_nToolsStyle + BUTTON_INCR);


m_wndStyleBar is a mem. variable.


Also , the toolbar is drawn on top of a frame on the dialog.
Type : Frame . Color : Black Id : IDC_TOOLBAR.

Thanks for your answer. I've now figure out EXACTLY what portion of the Create call was crashing. I believe this is a bug in Windows 95. Note: Windows NT performs flawlessly. When the CCS_NOPARENTALIGN flag is set AND the starting rectangle is NOT all zeroes, then the Create does a firey crash and burn. It works otherwise. Anybody know why???
