There has been no response for about 2 weeks so I'll assume that the patch worked.  Marking bug as fixed and closing report.

I have pushed cset
which improves the sizing of the welcome wizard. The cset is in the default branch but if tested on different platforms, I suggest to graft it into the stable branch.

I have a 2-display setup. One is in landscape mode (1600x1200) and
another in portrait mode (1200x1600).
When I start the octave for the first time the welcome screen is 600x1317 (see attached). So it is ugly in any case, but if I
start it on landscape display it is taller than the display so it makes all buttons off screen.
