Screenshot dialogs aren't maximized or scrollable/resizable

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center


Screenshots in software center are not very usable under UNR and on small screens: they aren't maximized by maximus as they are not considered like windows and can't be resized or scrolled.

It would be nice to at least offer scrolling in a real window, that would let maximus do it's job, or perhaps integrate with eog?

Maximus looks at the type of the window to decide whether to maximise or not; e.g. dialogs/popups aren't maximised but windows are; I'm not sure what it translates to in terms of Gtk+ objects.

I added code now that makes them scrollbable.
