      I can't remember why it's different for MS-Windows. Perhaps because it
      didn't work reliably on Unix?

      I could just include this patch and wait until someone complains...

          I just tried this on Windows 7.
          NOTE: My Taskbar is on the top of my screen not in the default bottom location.

          :ver
          VIM - Vi IMproved 7.3 (2010 Aug 15, compiled Nov 20 2012 14:29:01)
          MS-Windows 32-bit GUI version with OLE support
          Included patches: 1-725

          I started using:
          gvim -u NONE -U NONE --noplugins

          The moved the window down so that the bottom was near to the bottom of my screen.  Then using the menu Edit -> Select Font -> bumped it from 9 -> 14 -> 22 and so on.

          The bottom of Vim is off screen each time I increase it.
