Actually the dialog is supposed to come up with the image in the
original size (provided that this size does not exceed the printable
area). I just checked this and found to that this feature appears to
have been broken some time ago. I wonder why no-one submitted a bug
report for this. Anyway, this is now fixed in both branches.

Sorry, but what is an auto-orientation feature? Could you explain that?
Is this something that would have to be added to the "Image Settings"
page of the Print dialog? Otherwise it may be a feature that the GTK+
folks might be interested in adding.
