An easy change to bitcoin-qt. If another "top seeking" window "collides" with the splash screen, it degenerates, sadly, to what it was before. But it has some "animation"in the text in the somewhat long process of "Verifying blocks..." for the last two days. This redraws the screen. It's much better now. Compile your bitcoin-qt and try it yourself. Smiley

An even nicer text "spinner" for the now "top most" splash screen, see

And now a little more for the bitcoin-qt splash screen.

https://github.com/old-c-coder/bitcoin-git/commit/a3b0406c78c194a2925f627caefc0548fcaa012b

Just a slightly modified splash.png that has a thin black border around it, so that when the splash screen comes up on a white background, which is not unusual with other programs running, it doesn't "blend" in and be hard to distinguish from the background. On a dark background it is basically is the same.

Qt is much like windows, one must recompile the file that loads the .png file (splashscreen.cpp or bitcoin.cpp in earlier versions )so that it becomes "incorporated"into the exe much a "resource" in windows.
