I have a problem with non-maximised windows opening that are bigger than my screen area.
For example, as I type this in gedit, the window is fine. But if I try to open or save, the new window opens and the 'open' or 'save', and 'cancel' buttons are below and to the right of the screen. If I click on 'fully maximized' all is OK. If I then un-maximise, the problem returns.
The same happens when I try to open or save in LibreOffice.
It seems to be a problem when applications access the file system.
This happens on either of my two 12.04 Ubuntu PCs, which are non-identical home built PCs, with different monitor resolutions.
Can someone help me with finding out where to look, and ideally a GUI based solution to the problem. (I am willing to use the terminal window, but prefer not to!)
