    I think the _initial_ size should be smaller than at least
    1024x768 on all platforms independent of the number of
    parameters. Or the 'play' button should be in the top-region
    of the window.

    I use 'WindowMaker' as windowmanager and so never have a
    chance to reach the resize buttons :-(
