Your startup screen works, because none of the objects have anchoring options. Have you tried this by removing all anchor options on the kiosk layout? Once I removed that, the layout expanded to fill the screen.
Please take the time to let us all know, jgalt.

Edited 8/3/2012: I was wrong. I added a script trigger for upon first window open to hide the toolbar.
Would it be possible for you to post the file with your modification? I guess I do not understand what what you mean by "remove all anchor options" because I have tried it every way that I could think of and it's still not working. I am still seeing a blank bar at the bottom of the layout instead of it expanding to full screen. I have attached another sample file and a screen shot that illustrates the problem.
Yes, that eliminates it. Thanks!
