Wow must be a stack of email gone missing..I sent an answer to this 8 hours
Just a note on system/view/screen-face/size. Do a test script to see if it
is reporting the correct resolution. From some comments here a while back it
seems the value isn't initialised until after the first face is shown on
some platforms.(may have been fixed in beta 4.1 though) I know that the
experimental BeOS/View has that problem.
