Description of problem:
Using the transform tool in the gimp, and attempting to scale a selection,
the actual scale performed is exactly the inverse of the scale asked for.
(try to make it bigger, it gets smaller)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new image in the gimp. Put some text in it.
2.Select the text, and use the transform tool's scale mode.
3.Try to scale the selection down.
Actual Results: It will scale up.
Expected Results: It should scale down.
rpm -q gimp
I can scale it down on an IA64. My steps:
Create new image
select text (select all, cut, paste)
Right click -Tools -Transform Tools - Transform
Click on the image/text to be resized
Move the grid as desired (scale it up or down)
Click on "Scale" button.
Also, Rotation, Shearing and Prespective tools work too.

crutcher - you had the scaling tool in corrective mode, which is used for fixing
shear in photos, etc.
