The results in MkII and MkIV are inconsistent. Minimal example:


width: \figurewidth

In MkII I get,

width: 276.03125pt
height: 200.75pt

In MkIV I get,

width: 7592528sp
height: 5694396sp

which translates to (why doesn't MkIV use pt as units?)


I don't know if this is a bug in grph-inc.lua or in luatex.
