Try the attached.  (I also corrected some syntax and moved the title and
tagline over 20px so that they can't overlap the logo.)  This fixes the main
page background only in place.  That odd vendor-specific -khtml-background-size
attribute seems to make the background scale with the window (rather
than with the page content).

It would be dangerous to try to do the same for the banner, etc. because 
Konqueror doesn't quite interpret the CSS attribute required correctly, 
causing the page to break in weird ways if the window is resized.  Just
doing it to the main background seems to be okay, though.

Even if it doesn't help performance, we might want to consider keeping
the look anyway.
