Hi, I have a problem. I have a SDL app which creates a window of active size 40x2 pixels instead of requested size 640x400. It shows window toolbar with caption and icons as it should, just the size is wrong. Works allright on many PC's with Windows. Even on one with MAC when compiled on MAC. But on one "WinXp SP2, AMD Athlon 1.8, 512 RAM, GeForce4 MX 440 64MB" this problem occurs. SDL_SetVideoMode() initializes allright and SDL surface shows size 640x400, mode is allright and flags are the same as on working PC's. Anyone heard about such problem ? Thanks ! :)

Solved, or at least reason found !

It was caused by some Windows Blinds software which he uses. It has troubles with SDL apps, described here a little:
