I've found an interesting docking scenario in Visual Studio 2005 that UIStudio doesn't currently support.

1) Open Visual Studio 2005
2) Start with all ToolWindows docked
3) Float any single ToolWindow
4) Float any other single ToolWindow and dock it to the right of the first ToolWindow.
5) Float any other single ToolWindow and dock it to the right of the second ToolWindow... should now have three ToolWindows side-by-side in their own Floating Container
6) Double-click the header of the first ToolWindow in the Floating Container and it will be sent back to the main application
7) Double-click the header of the first ToolWindow again (now in the Main App) and it will be sent back to the Floating Container.

If you repeat the same process in the UIStudio Dock sample, step 7 will result in the ToolWindow floating on its own instead of going back to the Floating Container it came from.

I'm sure this one will be tricky ... enjoy :)
