 > Hi Sascha, --fullscreen takes up the full (emulated in VirtualBox)
 screen space, which it does very nicely, no decorations and fills the
 ~1200x900 VirtualBox window that was otherwise running basic Fedora 10.
 The problem is that for some daft reason even though it fills the whole
 ~1200x900 virtual 'screen' Xepher seems to be being told (and shows) the
 layout scaled for a fixed 800x600 screen size. Tiny frame, minute home
 ring, tiny tiny tabs in activities, and other funky and overly small Sugar
 layout issues. Using the extra --scaling 100 is pretty darn close to what
 I'd expect to see. But I'm guessing this is just luck for me and users or
 authors working in resolutions other than fixed 800x600 or 1200x900 will
 [http://zolpo.com/auto-insurance/ auto insurance quotes] not be seeing
 what they should. Many thanks for the --scaling trick! That does seems
 like the magic bullet here, but a pity it only does 72 or 100 as it won't
 work for other larger/smaller/in-between screen resolutions.
