Bug Description

The file, test_square.eps, was created in Adobe Illustrator. It has a
square which is 100 points on a side. Opening the same file in Inkscape
shows the square to be 80 points on a side. I'm Using Debian Sarge,
Inkscape 0.39, pstoedit 3.33.

I had to resubmit this because the uncompress file was a little to large to
attach.

I examined this file with GSview and GS 8.32 (latest), as
well as importing into Scribus 1.2.1cvs.

Errors from GSview / GS Output:

I'm seeing the same problems using Inkscape 0.40. I'm
taking bitmapped artwork, converted to EPS via potrace (via
commandline separate utility rather than built-in to
inkscape). The resulting EPS files are appropriately sized
when imported into scribus or when manipulated via gv or
xpdf or acroread (after ps2pdf conversion), but are shrunk
approximately 80% when imported into inkscape or opened
directly into inkscape. I can attach sample files, but I'm
not sure they're necessary as it happens with every file
I've used (and the above sample by Ron seems very
straitforward....

Thanks.
