Hm.  Mine stretched across 2 screens, but I'm running cvs from 4/21/2003
(Debian unstable).  I'll try a newer CVS copy.

The solution was to use the iconbox instead.  I almost prefer it... well, I
miss seeing the program's name; no biggie.

Since my smaller monitor is to the left and slightly below my bigger right-hand
monitor, new windows like to appear in the upper-left corner off-screen in the
dead area.

Could you change your smaller monitor to begin 100 pixels down and confirm

Glad I'm not insane (;
