eh eh... as said: it does in my experience... which normally involves a 
bigger x than y...
(i knew it while writing the lines above, but was too lazy to check for 

currently, the chain always uses x as the reference value (now i have 
checked in 1.5.0) and the question is: should rather use max(x,y) for both?

a trivial change, if everybody agrees that this could be useful and 
nobody sees a problem with it!
if this is the case, please fill a ticket on http://bugs.scribus.net !


p.s.: that would be a wonderful task for somebody wanting to create her 
first patch for scribus :-)
