here's what i came up with that's sorta satisfactory:

- set the nview option to span the desktop horizontally
- make the tv out the primary monitor
- border 0 and dimensions 800x600 on the gemwin

gives fullscreen output only on the svid-out and it covers the 
taskbar.  would be nice to have more options...

>Good luck!
