better aspect ratio constraining)

I think on some hardware resizing is much slower than to others. For
example, with an Nvidia Geforce 6800 resizing is painfully slow (driver
bug?) but with an old Radeon 9600 with the OSS drivers, resizing is as
fluid as Metacity.
I hope this issue is resolved soon, though I'm not sure what is causing
