           Summary: PowerPoint 2007 insensitive to changes in screen
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.2-rc6
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: m.duelli at web.de

For presentations, you usually have to change your screen to the right
resolution such that the external monitor / projector can display your slides.

However, I found that when you start PowerPoint 2007 using wine 1.2rc7 or more
specifically the wine server before adopting the screen resolution, then
PowerPoint or at least parts of it will stick to the former screen resolution.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start your computer with a certain screen resolution, say 1280x1024
2. Start up PowerPoint 2007 with wine.
(Everything is fine, presentation mode works as expected)
3. Change screen resolution
4. Activate presentation mode
-> The presentation will be rendered to fit in the old screen resolution and
there is no way to change this.

Possibly this also affects other applications.
