OK. That means it needs to be recalculated on reflow - the scale value,  
that is. I don't have an iPhone where I am now, but my initial guess would  
be that it will not affect the calculations of width and height in the  
procedure in the spec. I would guess that it will not change if user  
interaction has already changed the scale value. I need to do further  

Can you say something about how it works in your implementation?

Could you provide those two cases?
