I'm able to reproduce the issue with almost any language other than English. I have tried to use German, French, Polish, Danish, Italian and with any of these the TC just goes silently away.

I get this with a fresh INI file, the language is the only thing I changed.

32-bit Windows XP Professional SP2 with the latest patches and updates installed.
Today, I've spent some time playing with my computer settings and found something really weird. This issue only happens if there is a font smoothing (a system-wide setting) set to ClearType. As soon as I change it to "Standard" or disable the font smoothing at all, TC works just fine even with all those languages. Weird, isn't it?
When this issue happens and I do a right click, the TC does not vanishes immediately, but there is about one or two second delay after which it appears to me that something does invalidate TC main window area thereby causing entire window to erase background and repaint itself (I can see a well known flash effect). At this time, TC goes away.
Someone in this thread (Karl?) mentioned that TC is written in Delphi. Well, I'm Delphi developer myself and I'm having similar issue (the main window flash effect) with every new projects created in RAD Studio 2007 (Delphi 2007 for Win32), when MainFormOnTaskBar property of TApplication is set to True. It's enough to create an empty form with just one TLabel control on it and when run, the main form will repaint itself after a second or two and the text of the label becomes somehow distorted. I think it's not just a coincidence and I actually believe these issues are somehow related, which suggest that there is something wrong with my system.
