Interesting. I'll try to reproduce this on monday with my installation.

Anyway, the difference between startup with -nodecoration and without is
just one line of code:

  if (pScreenInfo->fDecoration)
    dwWindowStyle |= WS_CAPTION;
    dwWindowStyle |= WS_POPUP;

but MSDN docs do not give any hints what might be causing the problem.
