Wow must be a stack of email gone missing..I sent an answer to this 8 hours ago.. 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.
