Your result without rescaling is the same than using m.eigenvectors. The result
using rescaling shows a higher correlation than if you just use r.rescale (4.0)
I would not say this difference is significant, but we also have integer truncation when using r.rescale. Is the rescaling different in i.pca than in r.rescale?
Note that the critic point is that the rescaling has to be linear to conserve the uncorrelations.
