I think you probably do.  Perhaps it acts differently on Win98 than on Win95. 
 But If I open Squeak to the initial dialog and then grab the corner of the 
window and drag it down, the window resizes, but the working area does not.  
Nor does the color extend beyond the original size.  (I haven't tried 
shrinking, but my guess would be that the size would be maintained.  I would 
hope that it would be possible to scroll the containing window so as to 
access all parts of the Squeak area, but, as I said, I haven't tried this.)
