Why transparent label in form?

Hi all,

while my app is executing lots of database stuff, I want to show my user a waiting screen :

Dim myfrm As New dlgWachtForm
            myfrm.Show()
            myfrm.TopMost = True

This works OK, but on this form, there is a Label.
For whatever reason, this label becomes transparent, and the form under the waiting form shows through the size of the label....
I have tried different settings for the label's background etc, but all failed

Any suggestions?
