None of the zoom options seem to allow for 'scale to fit' behaviour

Bug Description

In the past I could set gthumb to automatically scale images that were too big down to the viewing window size, and those that were too small up.

Now it seems the option to allow for the autoscaling of small images up is no longer present - or at least the closest option that looks like it should do that ("Fit to window") doesn't, only doing the first bit (scaling down larger images) but not zooming smaller ones.

For viewing larger image sets of varying sizes - this is very irritating. One has to hit + or Shift X or click a toolbar button repeatedly. Could this functionality please be restored?

I have the same bug as this when using Ubuntu 10.04 - but not when using 11.10. It is very annoying!

Can't find it in bug reports, but I had a problem with the actual WINDOW size, resizing to the IMAGE. I checked preferences and nothing helped. THEN **ding** checked view menu at the top, sure enough there's a button "fit window to image" ON by DEFAULT. Turned that off and now I'm happy. If the image is too small, you can then easily zoom it, even in full screen mode.
I never use slideshow so can't tell you about that.
You can also zoom out, but if you have the fit to window option also checked (in preferences this time) it will do that as well.
Hope this helps someone with the problem I had. (Looking for solutions in preferences rather than on a menu)
