You have two options:
* use --desktop-scaling=0.8 to downscale the shadow window, you can also
access this scaling setting from xpra's system tray menu
* try --desktop-fullscreen=yes (your mileage may vary)

In the future, we will also have the option of using scrollbars for
windows that don't fit.

So you did resolve your shadow problems from your earlier email? How?

That's not normal, something is wrong with your installation.
