bad window size

I think I've finally managed to nail down a bug that's been bothering me for a long time.

If you open a series, the window may be positioned such that it is impossible to use the scroll bar to scroll to the end of the series. (Cursor keys still scroll.) The problem only happens when the height of the master EViews window is a certain size - a full screen display on a Microsoft Surface Pro happens to be such a size. It would be nice if this could be fixed, and maybe back-patched to 9.5.

Here's a picture.

There are a few ways to handle this unfortunate condition where our default window sizes causes the bottom portion of the second window you open to be hidden upon maximized display on a Surface Pro:

1. The scrollbar on the far right of the EViews frame will let you scroll down the entire client area so you can reach the scrollbar button.
2. If you shorten the height of the command window above, the series window will have more space and will appear correctly the next time you restart EViews.
3. You can also make the command window auto-hide by clicking the small pin icon in the top right corner of the command window. This will give you a lot more vertical space. Whenever you need the command window, just hover over the command tab.
4. You can drag the Command title portion and re-dock the window to the right or left side, giving you a lot more vertical space.
5. Finally, you can float the Command window separately from the main EViews frame.
