Curiouser and curiouser - I'd switched back and forth to and from landscape mode twice while trying to get the demo to run in the first place; once to landscape to try it, once back to portrait to see if it really didn't work there, back to landscape to play through the demo then back to portrait to get an accurate descrition for my initial post, and it kept failing.
I can't run the game on
my secondary monitor, 'cause the launcher starts the game window and the launcher always launches it on the primary monitor (in retrospect I think this is my 'open new windows on monitor x
' setting, but it doesn't matter) - however, dragging the launcher to the secondary monitor and launching the game from there brings it up on the primary monitor fully working! Moreover, since this happened I've been unable to reproduce the problem in portrait mode at all!
Bizarre, but I'm not complaining. ;-)

No, anything fullscreen will always revert to non-portrait, but I don't play many games on my PC (more of a console gamer these days) and I don't mind playing in windowed mode when I do, and I think this is the first time I've met something which minded the monitor orientation when windowed. (Sam and Max started up in windowed mode without me having to do anything the first time it ran, as it goes.)
Thanks for the help! Now where did I put my credit card...
