Re: mode4350 on Windows XP

The display is broken in the sense that there is now only one window
(usually after a compile, the window is split to accomodate the compilation
buffer). The menu bar is not displayed at the top, although if you point and
click with the mouse you can still pull down the menu. The minibuffer no
longer displays correctly (it is stuck on something like "executing g77 ..."
and doesn't echo commands.
If I change the buffer with the mouse menu, the new buffer tries to occupy
the minibuffer position. The status bar displays correctly for 25x80 mode.

This is the windows port of emacs (from djgpp, I think). I don't know what
you mean by "full screen mode", but maximising the window makes no
difference to the size of emacs or it's perceived functioning.
