Very good, as soon as I'm in a suitable platform, I'll try and evaluate.

There's still some issue in resizing. During resize, sometimes 
apparently it takes momentarily a wrong scanline, and the image comes 
out distorted.
Without SmartPaint you see this effect for a moment, but then the image 
is repainted, even if the resize is finished, and so it's just a blink. 
With SmartPaint if you stop resizing exactly at that moment the image is 
not repainted, and you see a distorted window. But this is more a issue 
of EvPaint than that of SmartPaint. Maybe it lacks the appropriate locks 
and it updates an image while it's being written. Must investigate further.

Yes it's Backend specific. But Windows and X11 sum up 95% of users!
