We discussed this on IRC, but just for completeness, the numbers are not 
device pixels, they are image coordinate space units. So if the image has 
a coordinate space of 0..1, 0.5 would be the middle of the image. If the 
image has coordinate square space in the range 0..31 (as a Windows .cur 
file might) then 0,0 would be the top left side, and 33,-2 would be two 
pixels to the right and above the top right corner.
