Size of ODG in ODT

LibreOffice 4.1.2.3

I am trying to insert an ODG into a ODT using Insert -> Object -> OLE Object -> Create from file

The "physical size" on the page (paper) of the object in the ODT is NOT the same as the original ODG ! Of course grabbing a resize handle in Writer "stretches" the contents out of shape.

Example 1, the ODG is 1 page which is defined as 6.0"x2.0" with 0,0,0,0 margins. When it is inserted it is clearly much taller than 2.0".

Example 2, the ODG is 1 page, A4 size with A4 default margins. When I try to insert it into my ODT it fills the width of the Letter size page, but the length is much too small.

In both case the image contents has the proper width/height ratio.
