[Bug 781329] Re: Some windows are created bigger than the desktop


This seems to still be an issue.  For instance, when I launch the System
Settings dialog on my laptop (1360x768), the window extends below the
bottom of my screen such that I can't see the "Users" icon.  This
window, as far as I can tell, is not resizable or maximizable, and no
scroll bar is created, so I can't scroll down to that setting applet.
Of course, since Unity thinks the whole window is being displayed, it
doesn't think scroll bars are necessary.  This is why no window should
ever be launched larger than can be displayed on the user's screen
resolution.  I'm using 13.04 with all updates.  I can grab a screen shot
if anyone needs it once I get home.
