Map windows opening larger than board size

Map windows are opening for me with a slightly larger dimension than the board size, resulting in margins showing the background color. I posted my experiences with this as a reply to this thread:

Is this a bug that I should submit? I wanted to ask before I did so.

Does the map have any horizontal or vertical padding greater than 0 defined?

No. In fact, the margin stays even if I modify the padding by positive or negative amounts.

Here it is with padding 0,0:

Here it is with padding 20,20:

And here it is with padding -20,-20:

I’ve posted my test module to see if anyone gets similar results on their computer or if it’s just something funky about Vista or my computer.

Similar results - so its not your machine or vista (Im using XP)

Will have to defer to Brent or Joel on this as to behavior

Can we go ahead and add this to the bug tracker?

Can someone add this formally to the bug tracker? (Map windows open larger than the board size leaving a visible margin around the board)

Thus spake “Bigtex01”:

Yes, you can. Go ahead and do it.
