*PagerGeometry 64x64

in Pager's config


*WharfForceSize 64x64
in wharf config should work

That should work, just make sure that it appears just before the actuall

Change in database :

Style "Wharf*"

to have AllowCover instead of AvoidCover

also you may want to change the Layer setting to have Wharf either below 
other apps (Layer -1) or same layer as other apps ( Layer 0 )

Same goes for other modules - Pager and WinList
