[OS X TeX] LaTeXiT/Omnigraffle 4/Linkback puzzle

I've been creating complex diagrams in Omnigraffle with objects  
containing LaTeX-typeset text created with LaTeXiT 1.7.0. If I double  
click one of those objects in Omnigraffle, I get the appropriate  
LaTeXiT version via Linkback (this is great!). However, if I edit the  
LaTeX material and re-typeset, the corresponding object in  
Omnigraffle is stretched to match the dimensions of the object before  
editing. I can correct this by using the Image inspector in  
Omnigraffle to give "Natural size" to the object (this wasn't the  
easiest workaround to find...). Any ideas of what is going on? I  
believe that the correct behavior should be that a changed object  
should be reinserted in Omnigraffle with its natural dimensions. My  
guess is that the combo is trying to be "helpful" and preserve any  
stretch applied previously to the object (including no stretch) by  
preserving dimensions, instead of by preserving stretch factors.
