There are some changes in xsane that try to address this. It is
certainly something that can be improved. There is a release coming at
some point, probably not very soon though.

I think that the current behaviour for the Viewer window is to size it
big enough to accommodate the image regardless of the prior setting.
The default Zoom is 100% so if the window is not big enough fully
maximized, then only a portion of the image will be seen.
This is a pain in the *ss to be sure and something that I will visit.
