This sounds like a bug that needs fixing. Is this Intuos? What XFree
version? Etc. Anyone else see something like this?

Hmm. Why just not have another image as a "scratch paper"? It would be less
trouble anyway I think. And you could have it where you want. The border
thing sounds like a lot of trouble for little real gain.

What comes to the space thing, I'd like to see the hold space&drag -> pan
image be implemented in gimp as well as all over Gnome (gnome print for
example) It is used pretty all over Mac and Windows, and I dont know why it
shouldnt be also for Gimp. I know we pan with mouse button 2, but space-drag
is kinda nice too. I need to use illustrator for vector graphics, so I get
all confused every time I switch apps :)

Best wishes,
