Things have been working rock solid for a while now. I'll give the patch a try if this problem arises again.
It looked like the Gnome portion of the window was the full 600x600, but Techne only rendered the portion that it used.

Alright let's see if we can troubleshoot this. Attached you'll find a patch against the latest CVS tree for Techne (it's changed a bit). To apply go into techne/src, copy the patch here and do:

cp main.c main.c.orig
patch < main.c.patch

Now recompile and run Slipstream like this:

slipstream-browser 2> /tmp/patchout

and start a game. If it works ok then quit and restart until it fails. Now quit and inspect the file /tmp/patchout. It should contain (possibly amongst others) lines like this:

GDK_CONFIGURE: event=(1024, 640), graphics.window=(1024, 640)

Attach the file here together with your current ~/.slipstream file and then restore the old main.c file by doing:

mv main.c.orig main.c

I'm a bit puzzled by your screenshot. The width is 600 pixels but the height of the used part of the window is 480 pixels. I cannot imagine where this number comes from though.

Even worse, it seems to work fine with me every time. At least here at work. If at least it fails often enough in your set-up I can try to come up with fixes using the force until it stops happening for you. I may have some idea why this is happening...

It worked correctly just a second ago. Intermittent bugs; the worst kind.

Hey, Dimitris,
With the latest CVS odd resolutions don't seem to be working. I've become addicted to 600x600, so handy having 45° at the corner of the screen. The lower portion of the screen is no longer rendering, instead favouring a 'standard' proportion.

May or may not be Slipstream related.

Screenshot attached.
