I'm a tad confused about this. In another post Mr. Witherite made it clear 
that he imported gerber to Protel in addition to viewing it in CAMtastic.

Now, we might scold him for letting the board house generate Gerber. 
Naughty, naughty! :-)

Be that as it may, I don't see clearly that he generated gerber himself and 
it was incorrect. The fab house could easily have altered this setting, 
perhaps trying to "improve" things.... one more reason not to let them 
generate gerber!

(They may alter gerber to deal with etching problems, etc., but this cannot 
be avoided and will not generally result in real changes in topology; they 
remain responsible for providing finished widths similar to what is in the 
gerber you provide them....)
