This also seems to be a problem in the stand-alone AGS. Since we already know the game had custom changes (see the title screen shows some background at the bottom), this is also more than likely due to custom changes in the engine.

This was fixed upstream with a special case for that engine. Some partial fixing of these two games (kathy rain and whispers of a machine) was done by criezy upstream and here, but after he paused merging with upstream, further changes were done that fixed this in WoaM and the custom resolution that game has.

Not sure if the kathy rain 'refrigerator text' in a puzzle near the end of the game is fixed too, but it might be (it depends on line height and size manipulation iirc).
