It appears this is a problem related to wxWidgets 3.1.3, since this is happening even in DarkRadiant 2.7.0.
In DR 2.6.0, which had been using wx 3.0.x, this problem is not occurring.

In previous versions of DR the issue would only 'crush' the UI elements from the side/edge of the window being moved, for example if resizing from the bottom. But As soon and you make the window larger e.g. by dragging said side/edge down the crushed elements would go back to the correct size.

This is not happening in 2.9.2pre1, the UI elements stay partially crushed or mangled. and the only fix is to fully reduce size down so its only showing the header and then open again, and even then this take a few attempts.

And a bit more troubleshooting is showing the issue only happens vertically, not horizontally.
