I mentioned the <alt><right click> trick on another (iirc) mailing list not 
long ago--it at least makes the situation bearable.  (Hold down <alt>, right 
click anywhere in a window (the cursor changes to a cross with arrowheads) 
and move the window as necessary to access any part of it you can't see.

Another reason I'm replying is to mention that a lot of people (especially us 
older types) still use 800x600 (or 640x480) because of our older eyes.
