Hi John,

Can’t replicate this on my MacBook Pro (Intel) running Mac OS X 10.4., 1.3.4 and 1.3.5svn all have windows within the main screen.

I suspect it could be either an issue related to the resolution you have 
chosen for your screen in the System Prefs > Monitor or something 
related to the PowerPC chip itself. In this last case, someone more 
knowledgeable will have to step in the discussion.

Please don’t work with 1.3.4 as it is a development version not meant 
for production. Stick with 1.3.3.x series. You will notice some specific 
Mac-related glitches too. Please browse the bugtracker to see whether we 
already have pinned it down. If not, feel free to file those bugs. We 
are not that many working on Macs...
