This sounds like the map resizing window bug (which has been around
forever and never fixed).

When your window resizes is your window being filled entirely by the
chat part of the window (type something in the window to see where the
text appears when you hit enter)? 
If it is (at the bottom), that is the problem - you need to drag the
horizontal bar at the bottom of the chat window up to reveal the map.
The board is loading - you just can't see it when the map window is
resizing itself
