Yes, I don't understand why it behaves like this. I thought that it would  
be put in the middle.

It's explained in details.pdf. In brief, for margin floats:

criterium=<width>: says that when the figure width is greater than  
<width>, the figure is put in the text area. When the figure width is less  
than <width>, it is put in the default specified margin (here:  

default=<setting>: default setting for that kind of float, including the  
chosen placement area (outermargin), until the criterium is reached.

maxwidth=<width>: gives the alignment delimiter in the margin, so that the  
figure will not go outside the specified width in the margin, but it will  
grow in the text area instead.

minwidth=<width>: ensures that the figure can take at least this width, so  
that if the figure width is smaller (and location=middle) it will be  
centered in this area.

I hope there's no missunderstanding in these explainations (others can  
tell). Anyway, it cannot be better than the details doc that shows how it
