Thanks for reporting.  What window manager do you use?  What is your
screen size (in pixels)?

That page does a few strange things:

 - <body onresize="window.location.href = window.location.href;">
   so when the window resizes, the page reloads

 - move top-left corner to recenter on reload

 - calls the resetSize(90) function to determine 90% of screen size
   on reload, using the following script:


 - writes a table and embedded flash object with that width and height
   using document.write().

That first part seems very questionable to me.  Based on
I am guessing it would be better to use the width= and height=
parameters when opening the window instead of trying to second-guess
the user who resizes it later.

Hope that helps,
