screenshot of incorrectly scaled background picture
Description of problem:
Desktop background is not resized correctly when changing display resolution down and up again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set display resolution to 1920x1080 using Display Preferences dialog
2. Change desktop background to file, choose "fill screen" style.
3. Set display resolution to 1280x800, observe the desktop background is scaled correctly
4. Set display resolution back to 1920x1080, now the desktop background is not scaled correctly.
In my environment I have two monitors, did the test on 2nd monitor as seen on the screenshot.
Correctly scaled background picture
I'm not sure about correct component, please correct if needed.
