The Fixed: Size option does not fix the current size, it enforces the 
size specified in the Fixed: Size entry below.

Because of this, it does not make sense to uncheck the Fixed: Size 
checkbox, change Width and Height, and check it again. If you want a 
specific Width or Height, you should specify that in the Fixed: Size entry.

There is currently a discussion going on what would be good default 
values for this entry (the RC1 always have 100x100), so you might wanna 
hook on.
