you do realize that if the application is reserving space for a piece of 
graphics, changing that size without the application knowing about it isn't 
goign to end up working well, right?

you can't solve the problem at the global level, you have to force the 
application writers to 'do the right thing'

Windows does this because they only allow you one way to do things, and if you 
do it differently, it will break on the next windows update (and it may anyway)

On Linux, there are many ways to do things, and you can't force the application 
writers to do the right thing.
