I need to get retired from using TeX. Sorry :(

The fact that confused me most is that XeTeX seemed to do it right,
and the previous version of image appeared to be OK as well. But there
the image was oversized anyway. Sorry again.

(TeX bugs strike so often that I tend to forget to double-check my own
mistakes when weird things start happening.)
