Well, it does not here. Several tools shows a wrong size initially. Some 
corrects the size after a moment, some does not, some inflicts the wrong size 
on the main editor window. Sometimes, as said, the displayed size depends on 
order of tools.

How can this depend on signals and slots??? Doesn't it just get the size from 
the main editor window?

Right now, my editor window claims that a "fit to window" image is at 14%, but 
the editor tools still appears to prefer 12%. Can some configuration value 
affect this?
