- Adjust the image based on whether beta version or not (beta message requiring space too)
- Adjusted exact values based on testing on practice

Existing fix cannot be ported to gtk2-client as it relies on cairo usage. I doubt anyone wants to spend time on gtk2-client specific development at this point. Though playing around with different clients recently has shown me that gtk2-client is like our light option (it seems that power of cairo comes with performance cost) and as such is not necessarily going away completely replaced by gtk3-client too soon (having one less client to maintain would be a good thing)

gtk3-client version of the same generic problem (image not leaving space for buttons) is that only topmost buttons are accessible.

With small screen size globe picture remains the same size as always. Buttons under it then shrink to what small space is left.

Attached screenshot from OpenEmbedded image run on qemu with matchbox window manager, which itself takes some space from the top of the screen.
