I think that it is a rounding error. Yes, we should
look into it, but I don't think it should hold back a
2.0.1 release. It's not a show-stopper.
Things we could/should possibly do:
1) Make sure we keep things in logical units until we
*definitely* need device units
2) Use floating point arithmetic (though Plam and I
have doubts about this)
3) Make sure that our integer math is "stable". For
example, consider these kinds of cases:
(11/10)*10 == 10 vs. (11*10/10) == 11
There's a 1 pixel rounding error, and we're off by 1
pixel at "Page Width" zoom. Of course, we need to be
sure that we don't cause an integer overflow at 4.2
