Ugh, this is an SDL-level issue, and I'm not certain the work around.
Someone recently asked about a similar issue on the tuxpaint-users or
tuxpaint-devel mailing list.  It's come up before, and I forget if anyone
even had a solution.  (It's not specific to Tux Paint.)

I'll ask on the SDL list again and see if anyone has ideas.

It lacks one because it doesn't have the ability to resize on-the-fly.
