I have a windows program I run in wine that requires a desktop slightly taller then the vertical work space of my netbook's screen when I create the desktop, wine clips it to fit the screen. I have to set it top all, grab it and move it up, press Alt+F8 to resize it. Is there a way to stop it from clipping in the first place. Running with out a desktop, still clips it but then I can not resize or move it.
Aside from alt+drag to move the window up and resize it manually as a workaround, I do not believe this to be possible as it's the Windows application declaring its starting size. You will see similar behavior running the application on Windows if you have a small enough screen.
