[Chameleon] Scales and printing

Hi Tyler,

I had a look at your site, but I'm not sure if I see the problem. The
image I received from the print-production had the exact same size and
extent. The scalebar was off by 1%, by this problem disappeared when I
changed extent, so it must be rounding. The print production does not
change the mapfile resolution anywhere, as far as I can tell.

Under what circumstances are the scales not equal?
