Scrolling innacurate after scaling the InkOverlay

    I'm adding an InkOverlay to my drawing application, primarily for annotation
    purposes. When my application window scrolls, I scroll my InkOverlay to
    match it by translating to the window's current viewport origin. This works
    well until I scale the window, and then ScaleTransform the InkOverlay's
    InkRenderer. After I do that, the annotation "drifts" during scaling, and no
    longer "stays in place" with the window underneath. For example, if I use
    Ink to draw a circle around a typed word in my application window, I can
    scroll the window around freely, and the word stays circled; if I scale, the
    circle grows to the correct size so that it surrounds the word, but when I
    scroll, the circle wanders away from the text.

    I saw a blog posting in which a developer was struggling with a scaling bug,
    and he recommended reallocating a new InkOverlay upon scaling. I've tried
    this, but the problem still remains.

    Please post to the microsoft.public.windows.tabletpc.developer newsgroup.
    They deal with those issues and the subject over there. This newsgroup is
    for normal, user support of Tablet PC functionalities, not programming.

    Sorry. I was pretty sure I did that. I'll triple check that I have the
    developer group selected before I post again (I'm using the web interface).

    Oh, sorry you're using the web interface. You know, unless there's an
    employment reason you can't use NNTP newsgroups, all the Microsoft
    newsgroups are available via regular newsreader programs (like Outlook
    Express, which comes on every Windows install) via the msnews.microsoft.com
    servers. No sign-in, no password, and they're all free to anyone around the
