Looks good to me. Are you running into some problem with this method?


No, I don't have problem with this method. But the display is very slow
(zoom in & out with the scroll mouse button) and I thought that it could
be because of the background. Apparently it's not that. Perhaps it's
because of the many primitive functions to draw a big graphic? I should
perhaps try to use GLX backend...
