This sounds to me like it may be the failure-to-upgrade-correctly bug. 
Did you install to a network location or otherwise install over the
pre-existing Wing 1.1b7-1?  If so, try uninstalling completely as
described in and then install again.  
If this fixes it, please let us know if you installed any bug fix patches
over 1.1b7-1.  We're trying to track down the cause of this.

If that doesn't sound like the problem, let's try to work through it...
e.g., let me know what screen size you're running on, which may affect
(1).  I'm wondering whether (2) may be some new problem with non-US
keyboards, although all the changes relating to that had been made in
1.1b7-1 already so that may just be paranoia.  Also, in this case, please
send me your preferences file.  However, let's do this directly rather
than via this list:  You can send to

In any case, win2k + 1.1b7-2 upgraded over a patched 1.1b7-1 is what
I'm running and so far it works without the above problems so there
must be some differences in environment.
