Small cleanups and added screenshot.

Summary (updated)

The background pixmap/qimage is never initialized, so if for some reason the splashscreen doesn't cover the entire screen, you get garbage. 

That reason can be a ksplashx theme that does not use multiple monitors on a multi-monitor system, or if it picks a background that is smaller than the current resolution (for example the Horos splash 1280x1024 version appears to be 1278x1024).

This addresses bug 264444.


  ksplash/ksplashx/splash.cpp d6a992a 



I tested this by both replacing the background that ksplashx was using with a smaller one, and on two multi-monitor systems (one of which uses a gentoo ksplash screen that only covered one of the monitors).

The splash_image.fill( 0 ) can be changed to another color for debugging purposes, clearly showing the region of the monitor that is not covered by the splashscreen (and where before would be garbage from graphics memory).


Example screenshot when background image does not fully cover the screen, on a dual 1280x1024 machine.
