Preferences Screen and General Resolution Off screen (too Big)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Screen Resolution 1024x600. Drivers properly installed and working correctly for ALL other applications. GMA500 Video and Poulsubo Drivers correctly compiled and istalled. MSI Wind U110 ECO, Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook

Preferences pages to not properly poll the actual screen resolution when opening. Certain actions in Calendar, Tasks, Mail and Preference pages cause all other resolutions to pull this improperly polled value. Once this happens, screen resolution scaling is incorrectly set too large causing the lower 1/2 of the screen and menus to be unusable until application is closed and re-opened.

Main preferences screen is ALWAYS improperly polled, making setup impossible.

Clearly there is an improperly assigned value in these resolutions instead of them correctly polling based on the number of people having issues with this and the variety of screen resolutions under which this occurs. PLEASE FIX THIS, it goes all the way back to 2.x.x.
