We know the problem, and we know we can't do anything about it ourselves. We have now made a work-around so that the bug won't appear in LyX 1.6.4. >As an aside, every time I save the preferences, the >maximized LyX window shrinks to the previously unmaximized >size, but the border remains unsizable.
