The problem is with the animation stuff not working properly for that 
screen, there is a similar problem if you put an animated image on there 
as well. My guess is the animation never completes and so the dialog 
size never gets reset to it's proper size. Removing 
from="windowslideup"> from the "videowindow" window definition in 
Arclights base.xml should at least prevent the problem.
