Unhappy 1200*600 (netbook) a real problem

Hi All

I have fedora 16 installed on a dell 10 inches netbook. My maximum Resolution iis restricted to 1200*600. The real problem is listed below

Problem:
The applications such as Disk Utility or evolution mail/calender etc do not show the entire menus on my screen. some menus go below the screen. it is problematic as i cannot select them nor i can cancell them. the only way of cancelling them is to press ctrl+f4, or use tab button and assume that the selection has been correctly selected and then press the space bar some how they dont even have a scroll bar to navigate.
the problem is since fedora 14. I thought it would get solved by newer versions. now its fedora 16. still the same problem.

two attachment has been attached as to get a brief idea
Attachment 1 is of evolution mail and the below menus are gome really below i cant even resize them
Attachment 2 is of disk utility the same problem as attachment 1

Is there any solution for this

Thanks in advance
