I'm not sure whether this was something you could set in the OpenGL
Preferences... wasn't there an entry for maximum texture resolution somewhere?

Back when this was written, graphics card memory was scarce, so I might have
limited it. No reason to keep that around, though. I'll take a look.

I'm not real happy with the backdrop feature. It really needs controls to scale,
rotate and move it around in the view. Right now it can only be sized and that
uses dialogs, which is just.... urgh... :-)
