I'm wondering if this might be a "Desktop Theme Issue." I've always had
recalcitrant behavior with Dark Themes after a while.

Can you for the temporary time being, select a "Stock/Boring/Default"
Theme? something like just plain old "Xfce" or "Xfce-basic."  I know
this is a pain, but it might reset things. Also a logout and login
should also reset the X server and give you a better representation of
the Theme.

I wonder if there is something XFBurn is paying attention to that is
somehow being mis-interpreted or doubled or something.

Also, can you run xfmedia and see if it does the same thing? xfmedia
reads the same stuff xfburn but has its own settings.xml

If xfmedia is working properly, then xfburn must be stuck in "maximized"
mode. If xfmedia is also faulty... this leads to my thinking it is a
theme issue.

Also, I've seen in the past ( a few years ago with my T61 Thinkpad and
others also experienced this) that is the Video card has multiple
outputs, but only one is being used, the "auto resolution" done by "X"
doesn't always work out properly.

One other thing to try, if you left click in the upper left hand corner
of the xfburn window... is there a "Roll Window Up" option. If there is
not, then we also could still have it in "maximized" mode.

There is my shot. Do with what you want.
