Thanks for the suggestion.  You were right and commenting out does 
change the behaviour slightly but the fundamental problem remains that I 
only see a portion of the intended screen.  I could easily write a small 
Windows test program if anybody would care to try it to find out what I 
am doing wrong.  Alternatively I remain open to other suggestions.
