Description margarita 1999-10-24 02:48:23 UTC
When an X-Window application such as Netscape is maximized
it does not quite fit the maximum of the screen. It must
be maximized manually with the upper right buttom to fit
exactly right.

The maximized window overlaps the menu bar and cuts off the
loading information of on the bootom of the netscape window.
However it does not always do this. Sometimes the maximixed
window is displayed correctly and does not overlap the

When a window is maximized and the upper left button at
the top is clicked with the mouse, the pull down menu is
off the screen and can't be read.

These errors are cosmetic in nature, but it would be nice
to have them fixed.
