That's very strange behavior of RadDocking control. I made a sample project with 2 buttons and RadDocking control and tried to reproduce the problem, but to no avail. Attached you can find the sample.
We will greatly appreciate a project that reproduces the issue. It will definitely help us in further pinpointing and resolving the problem.
