Why does everything look screwed up on my Windows Forms app?

Last Modified: 2010-05-02
I am troubleshooting a display problem for a VB.NET Windows application.  It was developed using VS 2003.  It is installed and working beautifully on 5 Windows 2000 pro machines.  It is installed and displaying incorrectly on a 6th Windows 2000 pro machine.  All 6 have .NET framework 1.1.4322 installed, and are up to date on windows updates.

I have posted striking screenshots that display the problem at:

The application is Windows Forms, and uses a MDI parent and child forms.  The application seemed to be working fine until one user called me and sent a screenshot showing the application screens completely ajar.  Everything is not lining up at all, and I would love it if anyone had some insight to this problem.  All comments appreciated.  Please take a look at the screenshot and let me know if you have any ideas.  Thanks!
