Attached a pic so you can see the missing button
1) Workaround? - have maximizer in its own window and not a tab.
2) Resize the main desktop window (with maximizer as a tab) to something with more horizontal space and see if it shows up.
3) Set the preference rememberDesktopSize to false, if it is set to true.
I was kind of able to reproduce on Windows 7, Java 6 and it feels like one of those cases where when you try and put 10 lbs of Swing components into a 5 lbs container Swing just silently gives up and drops things.
Well, I checked and rechecked rememberDesktopSize and it was set to false. When I started up mafia from scratch and clicked on the maximizer tab the pullable/buyable button wasn't there. Maybe the default size needs to be wider now? (so maybe this is a bug after all?)
