 It is in code for 4 moths without complains about side effects, solution
 works, so closing the ticket as fixed.

 > A similar issue (but maybe for a separate ticket): the wxdigitizer in
 the map display has a row of buttons that is too long for the map display,
 hiding the 'exit' button that I find quite essential. If one does not know
 that it exists, there is not indication for the user to look for it...

 This is the same problem system or wx toolbar which we cannot change and
 we have only limited space on screen. We could enlarge Map Display but we
 already enlarged Layer Manger, so on a small screen they fight each other
 for space.

 Create a separate ticket (and link this one) if it is an issue for you.
 However, I cannot fully confirm. The default (when you haven't saved the
 windows positions to user settings) is defined by (in `globalvar`):
 MAP_WINDOW_SIZE = (800, 600)
 On my computer when opening a GUI for the first time (e.g. after removing
 the `.grass7` directory), I get the map window large enough (see
 attachment). The original size of the screenshot (and probably of the
 window) was 802x629. However, I can resize the window, so that I cannot
 see the exit button anymore, so this is the way how to get to your
 situation. But I'm not sure, enforcing minimal size would be a solution
 but so far I saw that flexible map display has its advantages.
