Therefore, at 800x600 (docs screenshot) the dark area looks one way, then ordinary 1024x768 it is another way, the current desktop size here 1440x900 another way and of course, very large screens are different again.

just to be clear, there is no dynamic "dark stripe". it is a one size fits all background as your below comment suggests. richtig? :)

seeing that icons/text stretch up to the middle of the screen at 800x600 that should ideally be the margin to go for.
