I found the same problem with the latest GNUBackgammon Version
(20080811). How and where can I change the default window size?

I had a quick look but didn't manage to fix it.
This area (main widget/size) needs a bit of a rewrite.

You could try to undock the panels and see if that helps. Not a permanent solution though. Is it both height and width that causes the problem? I'll forward this to Jon as I think he is looking into window position and sizes.

I'm currently at 1152 x 864, but I've experienced the problem at other resolutions too. Anything experiments that I can try that would help narrow things down?

This is probably caused by the panel. What screen resolution are you using?

After saving settings (with Restore Window Positions checked) the size (and sometimes the position) of the main window is not saved unless the window was made larger than the default. If the window is resized to make it smaller than the default, the save does not take (and the window is instead displayed at the default size).

A very annoying thing, given that the default window size is larger than my screen.
