.wmf file does not import cleanly

Bug #247695 reported by Urban Landreman on 2008-07-11

Bug Description

I'm trying to import .wmf files, but they import inverted, upside down, and appear as only a very tiny object on the page.
A screen show of what I get is available at

I'm using Inkscape 0.46 with Windows XP Professional.

committed to bzr rev 10063. Added support for round rectangle, and some changes in default text color and an overflow problem with rotated text. New version of imported file AD-KzK2-BusinessProcess.wmf attached.

In order to use this modification, you'll need to use the file import type that says "Windows Metafiles", not "Windows Metafile"
