Okay, I've made changes to the code which should fix the resizing bug 
and also a few other tweaks (mostly to movie generation) out on CVS. 
Let me know if I've created new bugs in the process or if it's still 
apparently broken.  I have NOT tested on Windows or on X -- but made 
changes based on the feedback I got here.
