Thanks for the tip. I have no implemented a different approach:
- reduce the size of the image a bit, that makes it fit better on

- on unix:
	my $rh = $mw->reqheight;
	if (($rh >= 780) && !win32()) {
		require Tk::Pane;
		my $foo = $mainwindow->Scrolled("Frame", -scrollbars => "oe", -height => 780
		$mw->pack(-in => $foo);
	} else {
  That should do it. If the requested size (and since we didn't request
  any size it is the natural size) is smaller tahn 780 (I choose that to
  fit some window decorations) we do nothing, otherwise we pack it INTO
  another paned frame.

Taco, please, can you check that out? Do you have the svn version? Can
you try in your virtual machine on unix whther it works with a small
screen? I can only try win32.

Best wishes
