The Image class method getScaledInstance() doesn't seem to work.
I'm using Java 2 v1.3 on Windows ME. The drawImage() method of Graphics class
displays a scale down version of my images, but that's not what I want. I
want to display the scaled image not have drawImage scale it for me.

At times the getScaledInstance() method prevents any graphics from being
displayed after jvm tries to use drawImage() to display it. It is as if the
scaled version isn't created and the program hangs up there.

If anyone has any experience using it or similar problem(s), let me know.
