The support for virtual screens that you can pan around was dropped with
the introduction of XRandR 1.2; it'll be back in the next X.org version
(to be released with Ubuntu 9.04, if I'm not mistaken).
For now you'll have to settle for using a smaller font and, perhaps,
learning to move the window by alt+dragging after setting the option
that lets you move the title bar above the top of the screen. It's
settable somewhere in the advanced Compiz settings manager
If the code and the comments disagree, then both are probably wrong.
