I think it's the same problem that I've reported here 06158. So you can find the solution giving the widht and height values with -snapsize.

If no -snapsize is set, then the size of each frame is determined by render_target::compute_minimum_size, which depends on the screen's visible area. Now figure in that 32x and a number of other drivers can dynamically modify the visible area by means of screen_device::configure, and it's obvious what the problem is here.
