You may also try to add -font 'Helvetica 7' to the command line. It will
use smaller font and the windows may fit to the screen. I do not fully
understand the font system in PerlTk, not all system fonts can be used but
Helvetica works (at least on my computers).

(I hope that $mainwindow->CmdLine is invoked at the very beginning of the
program, otherwise -font will not work.)
