Note that the stretching problem is an old bug that was accidentally
included in the MapGuide OS 1.1.0 for windows release build.  Greg Boone

the 1.1.0 release to resolve this issue.

I also went through the process of building an ECW plugin for GDAL 1.3.1
for MapGuide for I haven't yet succeeded in getting it to work in
