Hmmm, that's really interesting. I can't reproduce any of these cases  
here :-( Is anyone else able to reproduce these cases? I've tested on  
an XO-1 running 0.82, XO-1 running 0.84, and a Mac running F11 and  
sugar-jhbuild 0.85.x

Just to help my sanity, when you next reproduce this... With the tool  
that you find fails, can you click and drag to create a size of your  
own choosing, and then afterwards single click to create a clone? Just  
to be sure that your not managing to create a 'micro' shape as the  
default by accident (yes I need to fix that case).
