thx :)

I think it's better to show you some screenshots:

Size is 522 x 486 - I think this is too small (a bug?)

Size is 762 x 695 pixels - expected size

I run my emacs on Ubuntu 16.10 with Xfce installed in Virtual Machine running
on Windows 7. Is Windows API the culprit here? I don't think so.
