Can you make a stack larger than the screen rect under Windows?

It's a Windows limitation (yes, I'm confirming it). You can see it yourself
by opening Notepad, manually moving it to the upper-left corner of your
screen, then manually resize the lower-right corner of the window to fill
the screen, then drag the title bar so the window is partially offscreen and
attempt to resize the window out again. You'll go a few pixels, but it'll
stop resizing when the window hits the width of the screen.
