what if your application was being run on a normal PC, would you try to
say that the window you are running in can't be resized?
even when rotated to the 'wrong' orientation, if the user is in monochrome
mode they have a 900 pixle wide screen, it's just a bit taller then
normal ;-) think of it as two 800x600 screens stacked on top of each other

don't remember the exact file to edit, but it was pretty trivial.
