Like I said, couldn't these programs both be refusing to stretch the
image? Unless your image is actually 2048x768 (or whatever), it
would have to be stretched without maintaining the aspect ratio
to fill the screen.

Try some of xv's root modes instead? From memory a simple
'xv -root <file> -quit' will centre the image in the root window.
