Scaling images

The lack of ability to scale the background image (not too mention the login screen) based on the user's screen resolution is painfully obvious and annoying.  Is it possible that this code could be adapted for the purpose?

It seems like a good fit, but I really don't know.

Re: Scaling images

So far, the change is working really well. It's not as good in narrow "cell phone mode" but should be perfect for most tablet and pc resolutions. 

I did notice that the clock in the bottom right corner disappears if window is too narrow, but that could have already been that way before the change.

I also need to keep an eye on the icon positioning.  When I first tested the changes, my icons were set to "smooth".  After several sizing and resizing operations and return to normal size, the icons started "dancing".  Sometimes one and sometimes two icons didn't know where they were supposed to be and kept moving from bottom of column 1 to top of column 2.  I changed the icon setting to "fielded" and I haven't seen that happen again.

I really almost hate to keep asking for stuff, but this is so awesome of a fix that I wonder if a prefs gui could be had for the login screen where an image could be selected and have the same 3 display options.  I'm preferable to scalable, but I can still see use of tiled or single image display for other purposes.

Re: Scaling images

I have just observed the "dancing icon" phenomenon again.  I now see it is just the icon refresh routine is running slower than the resizer.  Everything is disabled while they dance, but the routine finally catches up and operations resume.
