I feel like a newbie. :-)

My notebook that I regularly use for everything has a resolution of 
1280x800. Without a fullscreen mode for this application, this gets 
trimmed by about 30 pixels top and bottom due to control panels. So, 
1280x740. I was unable to see the bottom of the screen to login under 
the 1000x1000 resolution that netrek.py seems configured to use. I tried 
setting it to 1000x740, but this resulted in:

$ python netrek.py

Does everybody have 1000 pixel tall screens now, and I'm behind? :-)

I'll fiddle with it later tonight.
