Did you solve your issue already?
If not, I was thinking that you might try circumventing it...

Try resizing your screen caps before inserting them in FM. As a general
rule, I encourage everyone to do this. FM is not a friendly
graphics-handling program.
We use pngs too, but we actually take our screen caps at the target
resolution/size (using HyperSnap ~$30). That way we don't have to resize
them at all. If we want a different size, we take another screen cap at
a different resolution. We've never had any problem with a graphic
changing resolution in the doc. Maybe its because we never go there?

Dunno if this will help, but I figured it couldn't hurt to share.
