On my Amiga the window resizes but the backdrop doesn't resize to fit it, though the gradient has changed to reflect the larger size. So, at the end, I've still a bare band around the right and bottom. Is there some cross-platform issues here? Or perhaps a bug in Amiga View? The gradient should end up filling the whole of the window, shouldn't it?
