Problems with start menu background image

I have a problem with putting a image on my start menu background. I used 1 image and cropped it into 5 different images, but 1 out of the 5 screwed up on the right side of the start menu which is stretched even though the size is exactly the same, i use restorator and paint. I used one of dark7mix themes as a base (heres the link) http://www.deviantart.com/download/1...drianodj25.rar
and editted it to my liking

Probably a "sizing-margins" issue... Do you have Windows Style Builder...?

Edit : & how is it if extended...?
