[lug] Video changes in FC2? Maybe OpenOffice bug

I recently upgraded from KRUD FC 1 to KRUD FC 2. There seems to be something
odd going on with desktop sizes (I'm using KDE).
When a window is maximized, it properly fills the screen, but its indicator
does not fill the little desktop indicator. There is a narrow boundary
showing on the left and a wider one on top.
This is usually not a problem, but when I open the OpenOffice calc program, it
opens at the upper left of the "desktop" which puts its title bar off the
accessible screen, so it cannot be moved. (When maximized it correctly fills
the visible screen, but returns to its annoying location when un-maximized.)
This did not happen in FC1, but FC2 include updates to OpenOffice, KDE and the
change to X.org. (This is an improvement, however: the graphical logout
hasn't hung since the upgrade.)
Is there a way to safely probe a laptop screen to find out its real
formfactor, in case the current X settings are slightly off? Alternatively,
is there a good way to yank the errant window down where it belongs?
