Displayable.getWidth returning zero on OS 4.1



I have a subclass of javax.microedition.lcdui.Form that is calling getWidth inside its constructor.  On OS 4.1, tested with emulator and device, this is returning zero, even though the docs state 'This method returns the proper result at all times, even if the Displayable object has not yet been shown.'. It works fine on 4.2.2 and up. Is this a known bug? Any pointers for a workaround?
