DeferWindowPos doesn't always cause OnSize message

I am using DeferWindowPos to position several child windows (all have same Z-order). I need EndDeferWindowPos to generate an OnSize message each time it is called because I adjust the font based on the window size. It gets called sometimes, but not every time. Any idea why or how to fix it?

   int count = m_PaneList.Count();
   HDWP  hdwp = ::BeginDeferWindowPos(count + 1);

   
   for ( it.First(); it.IsValid(); it.Next() )
   {
      StatusWindowPane* pane = it.Object();
      if ( !pane )
         continue;
     
      pane->SetOrigin(CPoint(rc.left, rc.top));

      if ( hdwp )
            hdwp = ::DeferWindowPos( hdwp, pane->m_hWnd,  NULL, origin.x, origin.y,pane->Width(), rc.Height(),
            SWP_NOZORDER | SWP_NOACTIVATE);

      origin.x += pane->Width();
   }
   if ( hdwp )
      ::EndDeferWindowPos(hdwp);

If insufficient system resources are available for DeferWindowPos to succeed it returns NULL. In that case you should abandon any further calls to DeferWindowPos and not call EndDeferWindowPos -- your code doesn't do either of those. The MSDN also doesn't guarantee that EndDeferWindowPos generates WM_SIZE-messages -- it generates WM_WINDOWPOSCHANGING- and WM_WINDOWPOSCHANGED-messages for all windows changed.
