just tried this. whoops for joy. this works! for the first time in so
very long i can read the OSD without trouble.

i tried the following OSDs to make sure. in most case if just went
through 4:3 and 16:9 and tried at least two fill modes. for some i
checked all. but it really seems to be fixed.

Retro, Titivillus, blootube-OSD, Blue, Default, Gray, Isthmus, Iulius,
MePo-wide, Metallurgy, projectgrayhem-OSD.

so it works for "official" as well as "user supplied" OSD themes.

for Retro i tried all fill modes. for Isthmus i tried all aspect ratios.
for projectgraphem-OSD i tried all combinations of both.

this was on a 16:10 display. will try later on a real 16:9 display.
i don't have a 4:3 to test it with

could this be applied to trunk?

thank you so much
