Anyway! Your concern helped raise that issue about X11 and host-window resizing. Thanks for that! :-)

Well, this is annoying.

I inspected the Pi config.txt to compare the problematic one to the working one wrt display settings. I found differences and 'corrected' them and rebooted. No change. I removed the changes and rebooted; now it wouldn't even open a proper vnc window. Try some more; finally a vnc window again. Notice that the preferences tool for the display doesn't appear to know of any display on the problem Pi but does on the other. Try stuff. No change.

Run OS updates. Reboot. Now it behaves as we would expect.

OK, so now it works (yay!) but I don't have any idea what was wrong and whether it is important to know for future systems (boo!)

Life with computers....

Computer and car salesmen differ in that the latter know when they are lying.
