In the ps.map scale command, I can set the scale below a certain limit, but 
not above. In my example:

Exporting a world map through ps.map without setting the scale, I get:

PS-PAINT: PostScript painter "a4" selected.
PS-PAINT: scale set to 1 : 177342342

in the ps.map io-window.

I can set any scale that is lower than that, as for example 1:200000000, but 
none that are higher. Is this a feature, and the program automatically limits 
to the largest scale that can fit on the given paper, or is this a bug ?

Secondly, is it possible to put a bar scale, not a numerical scale on the map ?
