As if the VS.NET dual monitor bug wasn't enough, now Office 2003 has dual monitor-related problems.

I decided to be a bit adventurous and do what a friend has been harping on me to do for a while - I took my dual monitors, turned them on their side, and got some software to turn the display 90°. I have to say that I like the whole thing. The idea is that you scroll down more than you scroll left-right, so this allows for a 1024x1280 display instead of vice versa. And, using two monitors, it's actually 2048x1280. Anyway, after I did this, I noticed that Office 2003 applications don't display toolbars correctly. What is normally a vertical gradient from light to dark gray, there is now a horizontal gradient. It seems that Office 2003 wants to display the gradients based on the monitor's top instead of the new, pivoted top. Odd.
