Dear Dia developers,

thanks a lot for this great tool, it's the best flow-chart drawing tool
I've ever used (better than xfig or Kvivo ;-)!

I've just installed Gnome dia 0.86 and came a cross some strage output
behaviour when writing exporting a dia file to eps. Some of the objects
are not positioned as they are in the dia file. The offset for most of
these objects is not big but causes trouble because text sometimes goes
beyond boxes in the post script output, whereas it is perfectly centered
when looking at the box + text in dia.

This does not happene with png output. I wonder whtether this is a bug,
and ideally something that can be fixed ;-)

I've attached the original dia file and the eps output so you can have a
look at both files.

My system is:
Linux version 2.4.2-2 (root porky devel redhat com) (gcc version 2.96
20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-79)) #1 Sun Apr 8 20:41:30 EDT 2001

        thanks a lot for help,
