Thanks for taking the trouble to reply.  Unfortunately this doesn't 
help. What I see is that the Wine desktop starts full screen (at 
1024x768), but my application only occupies the top left hand corner of 
the screen (I'd guess that it's roughly 640x480) whereas under Windows 
it would occupy the full screen.  Any other thoughts?
