While scanning a set of images with XV, I frequently have JPGs that are too
large for my screen, and even though I do:
xv -geometry -0+0 file.jpg
X places the control buttons of the oversize window off the top
of the screen area. This means I have to drag an edge downward
to get at the buttons and kill the xv window. I don't want
to rescale the image, since it takes XV alot longer to load the
image, and my screen is already set to a high resolution.
On oversize images, I'd like to have the top border of the window
(controls) visible at the expense of the bottom part, which will be
off the screen. It's the opposite now.
