Why not do simply the following?

OK, it's not the right solution, but
- it solves the problem (at least with ubuntu's default gtk theme; I don't know, it might depend on the theme used)
- it has minimal impact (getting a window 5 pixel higher when image collection is shown doesn't really matters)
- you could ship intrepid with one less annoying bug

For users information:
try hiding the toolbar to get your images displayed correctly.

I have installed Ubuntu on several computers the last years, and I have experienced this bug in most of the installations. So annoying: Why not just make the window 2px bigger to fit the image on 100%.

There is a new bug report specific to Ubuntu 14.04 / 14.10: bug #1296487

Could you please vote (and subscribe) there?

@Rasmus Graver: "Why not just make the window 2px bigger to fit the image on 100%."

Because the difference is not always 2 pixels. Try to change the theme to High Contrast - the bug will not show up. Try to disable the toolbar in EOG - the bug will not show up. ...and anyway adding two pixels will not be a correct fix and the problem would probably manifest different ways in the future.
