The power print server is also not so accurate. I have just now aalayout in 
front of me where all the pads, vias and arcs are moved a little bit 
(maybee 2..4mil) to the upper left corner.
The vias are not _exactly_ on the junction of the two tracks it should 
connect. Also all the arcs of the polygon fills are moved, so they doesn't 
look pretty.

Anyone else seen this? This error is also visible on the PDFs I've printed 
from this board.
