Default DOS Box screen truncated in Full Screen mode

When I run DOS Box on my Vista system, the left side of the display is cut off by about 1/4 inch. This isn't always noticeable when running games, but is obvious when running applications. The problem isn't present when DOS Box is windowed.

Any suggestions, anyone?

Thanx,

Buddha

In the config file,
output=overlay or output=ddraw
fullresolution=[whatever your desktop resolution is]
scaler=normal3x
aspect=true

Taking the opportunity to flood Troubleshooting with useless banter while I'm not looking, are we?
