Set Angle Bug?

This one is a real truckload of old "Sh";

Imported an image that was 111 * 86 pixels; blew it up to 165 * 126
(i.e. about 1 and a half times the original size); locked it . . .

set the angle of img "MG" to 30

the image is rotated by 30 degrees, but the 'frame' of 165 * 126 pixels 
is not;
the image resizing so that its points fit within the 'frame'.

set the angle of img "MG" to 0

derotated the image and returned it to its original size.

Perhaps the most telling experiment was when I did this:

set the angle of img "MG" to 90

the whole image, being rotated 90 degrees was distorted to fit within
the 'frame'; the effect being that the pictorial content was both 
squeezed and stretched.

Needless to point out; that with the image at its original size, none of 
probelms arise.
