The image within the infobox on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_W._Garrett is
smaller than the infobox's standard 280px wide. The infobox stretches it
sideways but doesn't stretch it vertically by the same proportion like it did
before the upgrade this week. It appears that the troublemaker is the "none"
modifier in the image tag.
The following code in the Wikipedia Sandbox demonstrates the issue:
[[Image:John W. Garrett.jpg|none|280px|John W. Garret]] <!-- distorted -->
[[Image:John W. Garrett.jpg|thumb|280px|John W. Garret]] <!-- proportional
Just realized I didn't leave my editing/viewing software info...
Primary viewing platform:
SuSE Linux 9.0 with current updates
Also tested (bug appears there too):
Tested and confirmed on Firefox 1.0 and MSIE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.050301-1526;
See [[User:Dbenbenn/sandbox]]. With a "frame", the image is not scaled up at all.
With "thumb", the image is scaled correctly. With no frame, the width is scaled, but not the
Looking at the page source is instructive. The HTML <img> tags are
none: <img ... width="200" height="39" longdesc="/wiki/Image:WikiThanks.png" />
frame: <img ... width="43" height="39" longdesc="/wiki/Image:WikiThanks.png" />
thumb: <img ... width="200" height="181" longdesc="/wiki/Image:WikiThanks.png" />
The (height, width) should be (181, 200) in all three cases.
Fixed by fixing bug #2632 . It's comitted in cvs and should
be live soon ;)
Thanks for the report.

Made a correct fix for this now: the height was incorrectly calculated.
