Bug Description

Much people use non square facebook profile photos (avatars). Gwibber seems to stretch them to a 1:1 proportion.

Maybe you can resize the biggest side of the image to fit on the avatar square.

Thanks for this great software.

What's to be the new behaviour then? The options are:

* Pick a square subset of the avatar to display
* Display the avatar in it's entirety
