Standalone clipping Stack height on 800 X 600 display?

YES I brought this up about a month ago and was given great suggestion 
but no solutions, BUT the bottom line is there are some strange things 
going on when the user changes screen size during the running of the 
app that are different than if the screen size was set before the 
running of the app. I adjusted my stack at preOpenStack and made extra 
space at top and bottom for the cut off issue. BUT now on XP machines I 
have extra space showing from the desktop at top and bottom.
