I have my WFW 3.11 loaded on top of DOS 6.20 (instead of 6.22). Could this be the problem?

Just playing with that theses days. By chance I had a ms win3.1 virtual machine I created long time ago with a «nice» screen.
When I tried again, I got the same screen as yours (almost twice as lage as expected).
I noticed (almost by accident that if, from windows you go to MS-DOS mode (the MS-DOS icon on the main group) and then type exit the windows screen is from now correctly displayed ...
(MS Magic probably)
I compared the system.ini of the two machines and after two hours of trials and errors discovered that changing (manualy by editing the file) the EnableSharing=Yes in the [network] section into EnableSharing=No solved the problem.

Don't ask me why.

Hope this helps.
