Long standing bug in which an object whose upper left corner is not on the page has erroneous height and width which results in bogus coordinates and sizes for operations (other than dragging them to the page) on them.

For example, open a PDF that has an incorrect page size (too large). Reduce the size of the master page. Go to a page, select all and group then align to page. If one of the objects' upper left corner is not on the page to start with it will have an erroneous height and width. The group will then have erroneous coordinates, height and width and the alignment will subsequently push the all objects off the page.

This will also cause problems when trying to use the pasteboard as scratch space. For example, one of my projects calls for some objects to have an outlined and tinted background. I wrote a script for that purpose and it works great -- as long as the object's upper left corner is on the page. I've gotten used to working in the margins, but somehow I don't think this is really how its supposed to be.
