Thanks to you and Andreas for having looked into the issue. I had no big 
expectations that this problem could be solved easily, but you never 
know. A workaround for the Chrome bug has been found by jorix for 
example ([1])! :-)

There is already a bug report for a very similar Firefox bug: [2] which 
has a link to a CSS transform scale test page [3]. This page inspired my 
to create a similar test case for OL btw. I have just added a comment to 
this bug, but I'm aware that this bug is nearly 3 years old already and 
may not be solved any time soon.

Regards, Roald
