I'll give it a try. I wonder if the resize issue mentioned is still present?

Ugh, that's really recent. I'm pretty sure I didn't see anything wrong in r15455 when we were looking at the speed issue.

There is a QGIS render preference to turn on/off layers by default when adding them to a project, but it is greyed out (and checked on), along with the other render behavior options, # features to draw and render cache (unchecked). I think it's always been greyed out as far back as I can remember.
