Yes, there is something wrong. Now, a few questions :
Is there a resolution where it just start to show up ?
Did you try at 800x600, 1024x768, 1600x1200 ?
Did you try at some different aspect ratio, like 800x800 or 1600x800 ?

You should post the scene file to povray.binaries.scene-files
Be sure to include any custom .inc files and image used. If there are 
more than a single file used, zip them together.
That way, we can try to reproduce your issue.
