Office 2007 windows cut off when Maximized

I just installed CrossOver Linux 15 and installed Office 2007.  I'm using Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64 bit.

It seems to be working great after I figured out how to install from an ISO.  For some reason the installation failed to start if I mounted my ISO using "Mount archive" in Nemo.  I think Nemo does something odd - it seems to mount to an "archive://" path (?) which CrossOver probably doesn't understand, or at least I don't understand it.  After I extracted the ISO to a folder and used that CrossOver installed Office successfully.

The only oddity I'm getting is that when I have Excel or Word maximized on my main monitor, the window gets cut off at the bottom:

I can work around this by avoiding maximizing the window on this monitor, but that's not ideal.  It seems to maximize fine on my secondary monitor.

I tried unchecking "allow the window manager to control the windows" which fixed the clipping but then Excel was always on top of everything else.
