That won't work in Unix, where you cannot open a new screen, and the screen size is determined by the X server (and thus may vary depending on which workstation you are redirecting the display to).

Window border heights typically depend on the font size, i.e. they can change at any time. They are not system-dependent constants. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
