Although I don't have a solution, I just want to add that this is also happening to me. I have a button, 
that is "connected" to an onClick, but the specified onClick action doesn't occur when the page is first 
loaded, but does work if I just resize the screen.

I'm also using Netscape 2.0 on a Mac. (Hmmmmmm.........)
