OOooooo.... Nicely found.
I had a rummage in Buzilla but I guess I missed that one!

No...... the EPS export is just as bad as the prints.
SVG however is starting to look very promising! Though I may have to
install Illustrator to format them :(
I was trying to stay away from expensive bloatware by using Dia. Know of
any good SVG viewer/printers on Win32? The only free one I've found is the
Adobe SVG viewer and that only appears to work in IE.

Thanks ;)
At least I *know* that this is a Win32 bug and I'm not just doing
something silly.
