sorry, this doesn't work. it seems, that i have made my tests with an
already modified (media size) eps graphic. so the only working way i
found, is to edit the media size.

menu "media"-->"user defined..."
set the values to the ones from the bounding box (hit "I" after you have
loaded the gfx).

for your example:
  BoundingBox 0 0 244 243
  set the first value to 244pt, the second one to 243pt.
now the conversion should work (retested!) :)
