GUI when made smaller

Just wondering what was acceptable GUI behavior when the user starts changing the size of the application. My FBN client looks fine at sizes 640 by 480 and up, but if the user were to make it much narrower than 640 (pixels), then it would be unusable (the book seats text field goes away, etc.). Should I worry about this? Is there a way to make the minimum size of a frame, and if so, would this be something that Sun would look down on?
Any thoughts?

I made the JFrame a sertain size and made it unsizable. I did not lose points for it.
