Using RadWindow is available workaround since it has the functionality of the ChildWindow. And the GroupBox works fine in RadWindows. We will investigate the issue and try to fix it for one of the upcoming internal builds but I can not give an estimate at the moment. I believe the issue is very irritating and I am really sorry for the inconvenience.
