Description Martin Flöser 2012-04-10 19:34:13 UTC
How to reproduce:
1. Use Window Switching layout Grid
2. Have one window which is significantly smaller than the screen it is placed on
3. Don't have further windows
4. Use Alt+Tab

Actual Result:
The Thumbnail is upscaled significantly. This looks rather bad and makes the thumbnail all blurry

Expected Result:
Thumbnail does not get scaled larger than actual size of window.

than the window it's better to just use the orignal window size
and have the thumbnail rendered centered in the requested
