BorderContainer: child w/o region error msg clear

Description

If you have a child of a BC without a region attr, in 1.4 it worked fine (it acted as region="center").

In 1.6 is fails with the error message:

TypeError?: word is undefined

Which comes from calling capitalize on a undefined value.

It'd be nice if this error message was clear and especially nice if it told you what the id of the complaining BC was.

Summary: Make bordercontainer child w/o region error msg clearBorderContainer: child w/o region error msg clear

Hmm we don't usually "bloat" the code with error messages, since every byte counts on a web browser download. But I suppose I can restore the 1.4 behavior when region isn't specified, although not sure we ever said that the region parameter was optional.

BTW you can (and should) register your email w/trac (click preferences link) so you don't need to add it to the cc line.

Hmm, I tried 1.4, and it doesn't work fine. There's no exception, but the pane with no region does not show up in the center, or at all. If you have an example where it does work please attach it (using the attach file button).

Closing this since apparently it never returned an error message.
