Window layout should be adjusted on theme change

WinUAE doesn't handle the situation where the user changes the Windows theme (e.g. Aero to Classic or vice versa) very well.

On receiving WM_THEMECHANGED or WM_DWMCOMPOSITIONCHANGED messages the window layout should be adjusted to account for the changed window border thickness etc. There are some links to relevant pages on the Microsoft site here.

Pics attached show:
1_Started_in_Aero.png - WinUAE started when Aero theme is in use.
2_Switched_to_Classic.png - What window looks like after user changes to Classic theme.
3_Started_in_Classic.png - WinUAE started when Classic theme is in use.
4_Switched_to_Aero.png - What window looks like after user changes to Aero theme.
5_Switched_to_Aero_paused.png - As for pic 4 except paused, note the status bar overlapping emulation output.
