Yes, but the 1.95\textwidth was just a remainder of my experiments with
the width to see where the problem occurs and where not.  It occurs with
width=2\textwidth, too, as well as with lines=19.  And the latter two
one make sense.

And no, I don't want to put a figure 2 columns wide in a single column.
I want it to spawn over two columns.

According to (page
16ff.) it is perfectly okay to do the way I did.

That's what the directive btlr is for: flush from bottom to top and left
to right.

It's a documented feature, and it's not working properly (at least from
what I see).  I call this a bug.
