OK, I have prepared a set of screenshots which zoom in on the figure you

In fact, I think that I was wrong about this. The TestBigTest... images
compare a file created under Windows 2000, and then opened in Wine under
Corel Draw. The distortion is there immediately, it's just that with my
previous figure, when I first open it, the text is too small to see the
