There is a 'Set current region (WIND file) to match display' in the
'Zoom to...' menu. I haven't used it ever (I'm using gis.m very little
at all), but I guess it's for such purpose (I only wonder how it behaves
in different drawing modes ('Constrain map to region geometry' and 'Map
filles display window') as well as if it doesn't have problems with
resolution allignment. Please give a try and report back if you don't mind.

You propably have a point here. Michael?

Honestly - me too :).
