Hi Hero,

 From this description of how to reproduce the bug, I'm pretty sure it 
has nothing to do with the Mayavi code written by (mostly) Prabhu.  
Instead, this is a bug in the pyface dockwindow feature that Mayavi 
indirectly depends on.   I've added it to our issue tracker as bug 1335 
(https://svn.enthought.com/enthought/ticket/1335) and asked Dave M to 
look into it.   No promises on when he'll get a chance to do so though 
-- his machine crashed earlier this week and he's a bit behind on things 
as a result.
