What are your screen resolutions? Do they differ?

On the laptop that has the "wrong" behaviour, I've got two monitors connected via a USB-connected docking station. Both run at 1920x1200. If I disconnect the docking station and only use the laptop's own screen, at 1920x1080, it's the same.

By the way, if I start FreeOrion at fullscreen on one of those external monitors, I only get a completely white screen. The ambient sound works and the program can be exited with Alt-F4, so it's not entirely nonfunctional, but with an all-white screen, it's not usable. Running it at fullscreen on the laptop's own screen (docking station disconnected) works fine, though.

The other laptop runs at 1920x1080.
