The problem happens with Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows 8, even though by different pixel amounts. Just clicking with the mouse anywhere cause a re-computation of the layout so everything is ok.

But the problem is always there. At this point, I think that a reasonable workaround would be to force a layout re-computation just after the initialization... but how am I supposed to do that?
