Do you have a dual screen setup?

no dual screen but a virtual screen larger than screen size. But it's not enabled. to enabled it i need to go to System > Preferences > Screen resolution actually 1440x900 is enabled, but i can choose the virtual screen (8000x9000).

I just try disabled virtual screen in Xorg.conf and the proportions are perfect. I think this is the same "bug" as Dual screen.

Loïc, can you confirm the bug is in pigment? Is there an existing ticket in pigment's trac?
