If you make it taller, it will get better. Mine can't fit on the screen all the way.

is there an optimum setting for size to view the gadget without the bottom being crunched?

I personally use height 980, but you can probably use 940. Just increase the size until it doesn't scrunch at all, then drag gadget to the top to hide the messy header.

I actually don't see the News thread in my gadget, due to my screen size and extra thread. See screenshot.

Latest setting I have been using is 960 x 400 !

That way I only have 3 weird lines of code at the top of the gadget

but it may depend on your actual screen resolution & monitor

Been this way for about a month now

To add an update here I ironically ended up setting the height inbetween yours at 950x400 to keep the bottom from being squashed. The other problem seen is with the avatar image being a red X in a square at the bottom while the rest is visible by stretching things a bit.

No that's not any old image but a new for a fresh install of Vista along with the 64bit 7 host install.
