Re: [Nautilus-list] Background Size

i'm not sure this is the case.
here is my exact scenerio:

- working at 1024x768
- halt computer
- boot up later (no external monitor) at 800x600
- if nautilus is disabled from drawing my desktop, the background image is
drawn and scaled properly, using Ximian GNOME
- if nautilus is NOT disabled, and draws my desktop, the background image is
drawn and scaled as if it's still at 1024x768.

nautilus draws _over_ what GNOME draws, and i can see GNOME has drawn it
properly before nautilus does it's drawing. so this leads me to believe it's
a bug with nautilus.

| virtual-screen (scrolling).
| The solution is to change the values and restart X every time you need to
| change resolution properly.
