Subject: [Gimp-user] Inital zoom ratio bug?

So I'm using Gimp 2.8 in single window mode and not fullscreen window on
winXp. Initial zoom ratio is set to "Fit to window". And yet when I open a
big image which wouldn't fit to Gimp's window, Gimp still resize its own
window even to out of my screen's resolution boundary. I don't want that. My
pref window:
So is this bug or how can I prevent Gimp doing this?
Thanks for any answers!

That is odd.  I have the same settings (including single-window mode, with
my window carefully sized/placed to fill the whole screen because there's a
bug with maximized window status) and have yet to encounter the problem.

Hmm ... I have an idea what could be responsible (though exactly why fails
me), so try these steps:

1 - Size your GIMP window as desired.
2 - Go to the "Window Management" section of Preferences and hit the button
for "Save Window Positions Now".
3 - Restart GIMP and see if the behavior persists.

Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.

When using single-window mode, try tuning off fit-to-window etc. by
unchecking resize and zoom behavior.
