linux video issue

Hello video freaks,

I have a Proview 17" monitor that I use with FC1. For reasons I don't 
understand there is a disconnect in a video issue. Sometimes if I open a 
program its window will be partly off screen, often leaving buttons and other 
controls off screen. Because the grab bar is at the top of the screen I can 
not move the window to make them visible. I can slide the whole window 
sideways or down ok, but I can not get access to the bottom bits.

Sometimes (but not always) I can click the maximize widget which will bring 
the window perfectly into alignment with the visible screen and give me 
access. I have twiddled my fingers off adjusting the screen width and height 
buttons, I am satisfied the problem doesn't lie there.

Can someone point me in the right direction? Is this a common issue?

It is well known that nothing so excites the glands of a free market 
capitalist as the offer of a government subsidy.
